Threads Dance Project concludes its 11th year with the commissioned premiere of Abolition in Evolution (Part 1) as part of the Cowles Center Fall Forward Festival Week 2. Choreographer Karen Charles explores the potentialities of a new embodied abolitionist movement and the idea that one person/one act can change things for the common good. If abolition can be defined as radical imagining, where would that radical imagining take us and how do we manifest that place physically? What would be eradicated if we could all move towards instead of away from one another?
An encore performance of Abolition in Evolution (Part 1) will be part of a longer program at the Bloomington Center for the Arts that includes Threads repertory that further asks us to reflect on how we can move towards a new abolitionist movement to eradicate the ills that prevent us from fully realizing our humanity.
