The Dance Enthusiast Celebrates Black Choreographers:

"Dance is my medicine ... Dance is the fist with which I fight the sickening ignorance of prejudice. Instead of growing twisted like a gnarled tree inside myself, I am able to dance out my anger and frustration." Pearl Primus

Freeform Review:

Wonderful show. The dancers were magnificent and the choreography was fantastic! The performance presented a great breadth of expression ranging from imposing issues currently facing the world to the timelessness of personal interaction.  

Ms. Lesser devised some fascinating uses of pantomime as well. One piece explored the influence of the media on the public. For the closing, the the dancers formed a conveyer belt where they delivered one of the dancers to the edge of the stage as if she had become a manufactured product of media programming.
