This January choreographer, performer, and MacArthur Fellow Okwui Okpokwasili and director and visual designer Peter Born visit the ICA to create a new ICA commissioned multi-disciplinary performance as part of the Summer Stages Dance @ ICA/Boston residency program. Featuring movement, songs, and drama, the new work explores Black hair not as a cultural signifier, but rather as a symbol of self-care, a corporeal tool used to recover and reclaim histories, and a symbolic seed to plant for dreams of the future. Drop by for a sneak preview prior to the world premiere in May.


Summer Stages Dance @ the ICA is made possible, in part, with the support of Jane Karol and Howard Cooper, George and Ann Colony, David Parker, The Aliad Fund, and Stephanie and Leander McCormick-Goodhart.
