Memory Is Ritual: An Embodied Dance Featuring the North Carolina Central University Dance Company
Dancers from the North Carolina Central University (NCCU) dance program will perform original choreography that explores rituals of lament, release, and hope. This performance is an extension of the The Beautiful Project’s installation at the NCMA, Memory Is Ritual: A Remembrance of Ourselves, part of the exhibition NC Artist Connections.
After each performance there will be a talkback, or informal discussion with the audience, with the chair of NCCU’s dance department, Dr. Kristi Vincent Johnson, and The Beautiful Project’s creative director, Khayla Deans.
