The more recently created work, titled Rites (world premiere) is by commissioned artist and kinetic storyteller Charles O. Anderson. His creative residency was a joint venture in collaboration with the Utah Museum of Fine Art and their riveting Black Refractions: Highlights from the Studio Museum in Harlem exhibit. Abridged versions of Yin Yue’s In the Moment Somehow Secluded (world premiere) and Andrea Miller’s, I can see myself (formerly Pupil Suite) are set to make their Company premieres.Featured on this deeply evocative program is a world premiere by artist-activist Charles O. Anderson. He is the artistic director of dance theatre X, an Afro-contemporary dance theatre company and associate professor and department chair at the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Texas, Austin. The world premiere of Rites will be a dance theatre work loosely inspired by the writings of James Baldwin. The piece is an investigation of legacy, belonging and the history of black art and protest through the lens of speculative imaginings of funeral rites lamenting the loss of rights.Originally scheduled to be presented as part of our 2019-20 season, the performance of Yin Yue’s and Andrea Miller’s works were abruptly put on hold due to the conditions of the world-changing so dramatically. We are thrilled to return to these vibrant dances and re-envision them for this on-demand, filmed performance.
