Martin Dance Collective: Flying Home

Two sisters with medium brown skin dance together in front of a large wooden door.

Two women with medium brown skin are dancing together. One has her hair up in braids. She is wearing a long sleeve black shirt and gray pants. Her arm is reaching around the other dancer. The second woman's hair is loose obscuring her face. She is wearing black leggings and a sleeveless black shirt. She is holding onto a large wooden door for support.

Flying Home is an immersive dance theater piece created as a part of the 2024 Black Futures Residency with Zaccho Dance Theater. Inspired by Virginia Hamilton’s retelling of the folktale The People Could Fly, the piece looks at ideas of home, freedom, and belonging. We ask what does it mean to be “at home”? How does that feeling grow and change over time? And how are home and freedom connected?

Please join the performers Angela Arnold, Coral Martin and Jetta Martin for a Q and A and reception following the show. Flying Home provides the audience with an opportunity to engage interactively with the piece. Should audience members want to take advantage of this opportunity, they’ll need to remove their shoes so they can walk around and observe the piece from the stage.
