From Score to Choreography with Artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed & brASS Burlesque

This text-to-dance workshop, led by artist-in-residence Kameelah Janan Rasheed and guest members of brASS burlesque, interprets found language from the exhibition Scoring the Stacks into a series of movements. All bodies welcome. We perform the dance we create for ourselves as the workshop finale.

brASS: Brown RadicalAss Burlesque is a multidisciplinary performance troupe from NYC, recently featured in The New York Times. Composed of powerhouse queer femmes of color, they are actively stripping away the cis-hetero-patriarchy with their art/bodies and joyfully creating the world we want to see.
