The Diasporic Body: Black/African Release, Restoration, and Revival.

This performance and dialogue, led by Lela Aisha Jones, Postdoctoral Fellow in Dance, activates embodiment as a location for processing a violent social climate as well as states of oppression and privilege. The evening will also cultivate embodied activism and ceremonial diasporic revival. We will honor those who traverse daily racism and its intersections with our time, attention, and humility. Grounded in movement traditions and cultures of Black and African diasporic descent, there will be a mix of textual, performance, and participatory elements as a part of this event.
Conceived, directed and performed by Lela Aisha Jones and Flyground dancers, Amanda L. Edwards, Peaches Jones, Oiya Lowe. Student intern, Jasmine Stanton, will be substituting for Aigner Picou.
