WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Combining Reggie Wilson's formalist approach with Andréya Ouamba's improvisational style, the choreographers create a movement vocabulary drawn from their families' roots; Wilson's in the Mississippi Delta and Ouamba's in the Congo (Ouamba often refers to himself as a "Congolese refugee"--1st generation from the Congo to Senegal). The Good Dance delves into both the riches and historical horrors of these two crucibles of culture and the migration of the cultural communities that have surrounded them.
