In Closure
Choreography by Autumn Eckman
In Closure explores the concept of endings—the end of relationships, events, the world, and life itself. It is an invitation to see ourselves within our world from beginning to end and to consider the meaning of all that happens in between…

Raisin in the Milk: A Double Consciousness
Choreography by Ramon Flowers
Raisin in the Milk: A Double Consciousness will investigate the nature of racism in this country and how it plays out in the institution of American Ballet. Brenda Dixon-Gottschild’s scholarship documenting the Africanist presence in certain forms of mainstream ballet will serve as a point of departure for Ramon’s thesis project. Ramon is interested in examining racial stereotyping and appropriation as some of the causes of what W.E.B. DuBois has called “double consciousness” and their impact on the “Black Dancing Body.” His research will examine the struggle for black dancers of unifying different components of their composite identity, and how this process plays out phenomenologically. In his process, he seeks a better understanding of the mechanics and cultural politics of “appropriation” and its implications for understanding how racism works and is disseminated on artistic and aesthetic grounds. Ramon’s research will be an embodiment of the African diaspora, which had an influence on the founding father of American Ballet, George Balanchine.

Raisin in the Milk: A Double Consciousness contains some adult language and graphic photography.
