Live Performances: reVERSE-gesture-reVIEWed
Three shows: Thursday, January 26, 7 PM and Friday, January 27, 2 and 7 PM
In this unique performance, Thomas F. DeFrantz and SLIPPAGE respond to an installation of Kara Walker’s prints at the Nasher Museum. SLIPPAGE will reverse and review the potent imagery that Walker has created in her series, Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated), part of the museum's collection. How can the physical gestures of dance expand the ways we might look at these visual works of art? How can dance open up interpretation and suggest even more revisionist histories of the African American presence in the visual archive of the Civil War? The performance will begin in the Incubator Gallery and migrate to a nearby empty gallery space.

SLIPPAGE is directed by Thomas F. DeFrantz, Professor and Chair of African and African American Studies at Duke. The performance will include collaborations by eto otitigbe, Shireen Dickson and Brittany Williams.
