FringeArts - Reggie Wilson / Fist & Heel Performance Group - Citizen
More and more questions about what it means to be a citizen in America, over history and to-date, started to saturate my thoughts. Reggie Wilson, choreographer
His dances, which rely heavily on songs and rhythms . . . sprout from one concept, but by the time hes finished, they are a garden of references, memories, and ideas. Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
What does it mean to belong? What does it mean to NOT want to belong?
This greatly expressive, physically virtuosic company takes audiences on an exploration of belongingin public, in private, in all its aspectsand exposes the core of the human impulse to be a part of the group. CITIZEN is a contemporary dance that confronts the complex challenges, struggles, judgments, and webbing between anonymity and community, between ideas of individual self and of being a citizen of your homeland or your adopted homeland. This exhilarating and provocative work features layered interplay between dancers, film, and shadowand a masterful display of motion.
