|The Philadelphia Alumni Club invites you to join them as Dance Theare X performs "Restless Natives" choreographed by Charles O. Anderson.
October 25 - 26
1801 N. Broad Street
Restless Natives is a 6-person choreopoem inspired by and in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of James Baldwin’s Another Country. In addition to the six performers (dancers and actors who dance), the piece features an original poetry score by renowned performance poet, Ursula Rucker who will perform live. Set within a jukejoint called Home, a kind of neighborhood bar- a speakeasy where the conversations are not easy- located at the intersection of Memory and Experience, Restless Natives is a non-linear dance theatre piece that asks and responds to the question, “Do you love me?” within shifting thematic contexts of race, gender, class, and politics drawing from contemporary and traditional African Diasporic music and movement forms and theatrical conventions.
This performance is part of the Temply University Reflect and Respond series.
