WASHINGTON DC: Keep the Light On Performance Series: Co-Presented with The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center
Dance Place + The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center
This presentation is a free virtual event
Dance Place is pleased to be part of The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center’s BlackLight Summit: a convening that re-envisions dance performance as a conduit to galvanize the social imaginations, resilience, and inventiveness of citizens, thinkers, activists, and artists. For Day 1 of the Summit, Dance Place and The Clarice co-present an evening of virtual works co-curated by Summit artists Candace Scarborough and Jamal Abrams.
Invited to select two early/mid-career BIPOC dance artists with a strong connection to the DMV region, Candace and Jamal selected Shanice Mason and Carlo Antonio Villanueva to present short-form digital works. Following these works, join Candace, Jamal, Shanice and Carlo in conversation with The Clarice Producer & Curator and Dance Place Artist in Residence Tariq Darrell O’Meally to discuss these works and the themes of the summit: amplifying unfairly silenced voices through action.
