The Human Odyssey Series, curated by Malcom Betts, is a monthly performance showcase series exploring the human connection between the performer and audience. It challenges ideas of self-identity within the movement practices or any other forms of disciplinary practices.  

This showcase will consist of three dance-based art performances ranging from 15 to 20 minutes. 

  • Black Bodies Gone Down – Malcolm Betts is a dance-based performance focusing around themes of using black masculinity, black feminism, and historical systematic racism through entertainment and performance as radical healing. Style of dance: West African, Contemporary and Hip Hop
  • Revolutionary Womyn – Angelica Tolentino This piece explores and documents the daily individual and collective struggle and resistance of womyn. It explores the ways in which womyn of color, migrant womyn, and indigenous womyn have faced multiple oppressions. Style of dance: Hip Hop, Contemporary
  • Only Human – Christine Bonansea This piece is inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s Human, All Too Human. Christine investigates the stark contradiction between our race’s capacity for freedom and beauty against its most destructive and illogical behaviors. (solo) Style of Dance: Experimental, Contemporary

This program is suitable for adults only.
