Event Details

The Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography is thrilled to welcome Charles O. Andersoninto residency for the first time from April 14-26, 2019. During his time at MANCC, Anderson will further the development of (Re)current Unrest, which is an evening-length immersive performance installation ‘ritual’ built upon the sonic foundation of Steve Reich’s three earliest works: It’s Gonna Rain(parts 1 and 2), Come Out and Pendulum. The piece is an investigation of legacy, authorship, and the history of black art and protest through the lens of the erasure of the Africanist presence inside of Reich’s compositions. Inspired by James Baldwin’s Fire Next Time and Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Between the World and Me, (Re)current Unrest is an open movement letter from the artist, as a member of Generation X, to the millennial generation, saying ‘stay woke’!
