WASHINGTON, DC: "What's Going On" - Modern, Jazz and West African dance
Returning home after a sold-out nationwide tour, What’s Going On is Dance Place’s critically acclaimed producing debut that “offers the sweetest solace possible: people coming together” (The Washington Post). Artistic Director Vincent E. Thomas looks through the lens of Marvin Gaye’s transcendent music and finds a reflection of the world today. Taking inspiration from 1971’s inimitable What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye’s insights into life, love and social justice are given fresh perspectives with choreography by Vincent E. Thomas, Ralph Glenmore and Sylvia Soumah.
This evening-length work features Modern, Jazz and West African dance. What’s Going On seeks to provoke thoughtfulness and spark conversations to ignite change in each community it touches.
