Wideman Davis Dance presents Migratuse Ataraxia, a site-specific work that will be performed in the Ware-Farley-Hood House in Montgomery, AL. Migratuse Ataraxia is a multimedia dance performance that shifts the rules of representation in antebellum domestic spaces to memorialize the lives of enslaved individuals through movement, technology, visual installations, and community dialogue. Performers will lead audience members through a series of vignettes – each staged in a separate room – that de-territorializes each room and challenges notions of freedom and movement through racialized spaces. Performances are September 1-3. Performances are free, but a reservation is required because space is limited.

Masks required for all audience members during the show.

*No dinner will be served due to COVID restrictions

MIGRATUSE REIMAGINED

Location:
Selma, AL

Performance Dates:
October 13, 2022
October 14, 2022
October 15, 2022

Time: 7:30 pm

Free tickets, reservations required.

Migratuse Reimagined is the latest iteration of Wideman Davis Dance’s performative exploration of intimacy, home, and expressions of freedom and joy, among others. Whereas previous stagings explored these questions in the context of slavery, the artists intentionally shift the journey from spaces of enslavement to those of Black liberation and empowerment through a mobile, performative intervention. Participants will travel a walking tour route where they will encounter the artists’ responses to historic, Black spaces through large scale projections, sonic environments, and live performances that speak to Black futurity.
