CARRIE MAE WEEMS SOCIAL STUDIES 101 PROJECT
“The dance community and being able to physically dance with others in the same space are definitely segments of my life that I have been craving more of recently. Usually, when I choreograph a dance I often use improvisation as a tool and start to move in reference to a motif or a prompt. Carrie Mae Weems’s work represents a community that I am a part of and, as a result, I started to construct my choreography from a small improvisation and continued to build upon it with the idea of playing with levels and tempos. This work serves as a reminder that there is hope and, with patience, we will all be dancing together again.” — Kahlila Brown, dance artist based in Durham
Kahlila is one of 12 North Carolina artists selected by the American Dance Festival to perform in front of several installations of this outdoor exhibition created by artist Carrie Mae Weems. Learn more about this collaboration.
