About

Guiding Text: "In the Wake: On Blackness and Being" by Christina Sharpe In what ways does touch allow lived experiences of Blackness to be celebrated, healed, and provide resilience? What is a cherished memory in relation to touch? The current work of this collaboration is "Loving Each Other," a dance film centering Chicago-style Stepping, Chicago House, and footwork. This collaboration seeks to grasp ways in which touch within Blackness yields intimacy, is challenged by historical and generational distance, and services the communal and individual via an embodied experience of valued lives. Christina Sharpe’s text, "In the Wake: On Blackness and Being," will guide the conversation, provisioning an understanding of the ways in which the lives of Black folks after chattel slavery, and during the historical mission of re-articulation, can give birth to new imaginations.

Cat Mahari with Rae Chardonnay, Amir George, and Daniel Haywood
