Jamal Jackson’s newest work Bask in The Shade is a piece that explores how an individual views him or herself and how that perception is changed when the individual's social circle expands. The work takes an in-depth look at the influence and pressure that the surrounding community places on the individual. Bask in The Shade investigates the layers and complexities of intra and interracial cohesion. The use of traditional Malian dance combined with an evolved contemporary African technique helps show the tug of war between more traditional and modern values. Bask in The Shade highlights the individual’s differences, celebrates those differences, and shows how those independent traits shape a larger community.

Tickets can be purchased at www.ps21chatham.org, by calling 1-800-838-3006, or at the door until the show sells out. For other information about this or any other event at PS21, please call (518) 392-6121.

Performed by Dianna Anderson, Rebecca Greenbaum, Karina Ikezoe, Jamal Jackson, Sydnie Liggett, Alyssa Maksym, Dana Thomas, and Gabriel Wilson is composed by Frank Malloy IV.
