On Saturday, October 16, 2021, the museum hosted two intimate performances of Philadelphia-based choreographer Raphael Xavier’s version of The Xcope. The Xcope was commissioned by American Dance Festival and featured hip hop aesthetics like breaking, poetry, spoken word and rap cadences with an improvisational and intuitive approach. The collaboration included N.C. artists: Johnny Lee Chapman, III, Lee Edwards, Ayan Felix, Brandon McCrimmon, LeDarius Parker, Jose Velasquez and Ronald West, as well as Cleveland-based artist Sammy Mac.
