WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Laylah Ali's provocative paintings featuring her invented "Greenhead" characters are the inspiration for this unique performance collaboration between Bessie-awarded choreographer Dean Moss and the 2004 Whitney Biennial artist. Through disquieting scenes enacted by a cast of six, figures on a field addresses issues of power related to athletic, religious, and military contexts, while also exploring the dynamic between patterns of cultural consumption and formations of identity.
