CANCELLED: Silk Choke Ripple Pyre
Thursday, September 10
Pass the Hat
Three color guard performers march through the streets of Atlanta, entangling the vocabularies of parade and protest as they twirl. Filmed in rhythmic cadence, Silk Choke Ripple Pyre moves across choreographies of violence, celebration, and collective action on its way towards a future-horizon spectacular. The latest work in a series devoted to queer and POC southerner experience.
Movement devised in collaboration with Atlanta based color guard performers, Matthew Gilmore, Deandre Pearson, and Omari Simmon. Music composed and performed by Josh Brown, Jessica Fuquay, and Eric Weidenhof.
Audience will join together to watch a livestream screening of the dance film. Chat features will be enabled during the screening. Appropriate for all ages.
