Boston-born choreographer Will Rawls returns to his hometown for a weeklong Summer Stages Dance @ ICA residency. While at the ICA, Rawls and his collaborators will investigate cultural violence and disappearance through movement, language, installation, and projection for his upcoming performance What Remains. Created with writer Claudia Rankine and filmmaker John Lucas, What Remains explores hidden histories, broken tongues, and premature death in the lives of African-Americans. Catch a glimpse of Rawls’s working process this summer, and return in April 2019, when he and the company present the full performance of What Remains.
Performers: Leslie Cuyjet, Jessica Pretty, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Tara Willis.
Summer Stages Dance @ the ICA/Boston is made possible, in part, with the support of Jane Karol and Howard Cooper, David Parker, The Aliad Fund, George and Ann Colony, and Stephanie and Leander McCormick-Goodhart
