This December, join CounterPulse as we revel in new community-driven, multimedia dance works by Cherie Hill IrieDance and Gabriel Christian & Chibueze Crouch that examine ecofeminism and religion through the lens of African Diasporic narratives.
She-Verse by Cherie Hill IrieDance is a multimedia piece inspired by drifting water, land, ancestors, bravery, and eco-feminism. The work is a meditation on dance, time, the body, femininity, and oneness with nature.
Next, mouth//full by Gabriel Christian & Chibueze Crouch explores faith in the Black body, as told through the testimonies of two artists from the African Diaspora. By mining their personal relationships to spirituality within and outside religious institutions, they will create a new Mas(s) where all can feel truly whole and holy.
