Weight of the World

This started off as just an idea in Nia’s head in 2016. She made a series of three duets that focused on mental health, specifically depression. The pieces explored what depression is, the main stream stigma behind it, and how some people choose to live with it day today. After making these works and see how they effected people Nia wondered if she could work with this idea and expand it to include other mental health issues and from there "Weight of the World" was born. . There is an Open Dress rehearsal on the 15th for students and friends to come to and a full production the 16th for outside guests. Please RSVP for tickets.

Kareem Alexander Presents "uN-radical bodies"

uN-radical bodies is Kareem Alexander's independent project Kareem is creating in their last year of undergraduate study. uN-radical bodies is a movement based exploration inspired by Kareem's observation and experience of New York City's "downtown dance scene". As a NYC based artist who is knowledgeable in postmodern dance history, Kareem is fully aware that the idea of the radical body alludes to white bodies. Black and Brown bodies and artwork seem to only refer to some radical racialized “other” but never respected in the same regard. uN-radical bodies attempts to investigate, dismantle, build, and destroy these ideas. Kareem attempts to make a “safe space" (an idea that often renders itself problematic) that doubles as a space littered with radical un-comfortability for the choreographer, dancers, and audience alike. Free for Guests. Please RSVP at Eventbrite:
