OMI-dance

An evening of dance celebrating 25 years of Art Omi, Alumni Stephanie Miracle (Dance Omi 2012) and Monstah Black (Dance Omi 2011), each present multi-disciplinary solo dance performances. Stephanie Miracle is from the US, but currently living and working in Germany. She will present Figure Eights (Part 2), an autobiographical solo that weaves, darts, and lingers in a memory landscape. Original music is performed live by David Schulman. Monstah Black presents Cotton, a dance performance and film. Black employs images from slavery as a point of departure, modifying the images into positive iconography to inspire and empower those that suffered it's ugly legacy. "In Cotton, I take something that was originally cultivated by slaves and turn it into a conversation piece that can be seen as an eye candy, but hard to swallow.”

Co-presented by PS21 and Art Omi.
