Theatre of Movement presents The Resistance Project: Celebrating Black Women in the Arts

Available via Livestream

“I have created nothing really beautiful, really lasting, but if I can inspire one of these youngsters to develop the talent I know they possess, then my monument will be in their work.” –Augusta Savage

The Resistance Project is a multidisciplinary performance and community discussion led by artist and curator Duane Cyrus. It brings together women of the African diaspora and their allies from various age groups and backgrounds to discuss scholarship, creativity, and community engagement. It also features a performance installation by Cyrus and works inspired by the theme from local artists.

The May 26 program includes guests Kesia Cedeno Ballard, Azaria G, Malanah Hobgood, Katherine Malet, and Jurne Smith. Together with Cyrus and the audience, they will talk about one or more of the following topics:

  • Black women and legacy in art, education, and activism
  • The role of black women artists in transforming society
  • What is the purpose or function of the art we make within society?
  • How do young artists navigate a new career in the arts in the current environment?

This is an opportunity to experience and learn more about how artists and scholars make work and contribute to society. Come meet the talented people who help drive the artistic, creative, and education sectors of North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad region.

Presented by the North Carolina Museum of Art and Duane Cyrus/Theatre of Movement and supported by the North Carolina Museum of Art and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) School of Dance. Funding support from the North Carolina Arts Council, UNCG’s She Can We Can Grant, Arts Greensboro, and New Music USA–made possible by annual program support and/or endowment gifts from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, Baisley Powell Elebash Fund, and The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
