JERSEY CITY, NJ: Nimbus Dance presents STAND UP
Celebrating artists as leaders, communicators, and voices of conscience and protest, Nimbus curates a program proclaiming the critical importance of social justice issues of the current moment, and the thread of these issues throughout American history.
People Place Disruption, a work created in collaboration with Jersey City artists, filmmakers, and video artists as a dance film in Spring 2021, returns as a live performance this season. Lauded as “impactful” and “accomplished” the work features emerging choreographic voices within Nimbus. Also on the program: two masterpieces of the 20th century: Strange Fruit (Dr. Pearl Primus, 1943) and Lynchtown (Charles Weidman, 1936), and a new work created by Hudson County youth about the current social injustices they are compelled to "Stand Up" against.
