“Leslie Parker’s work-in-progress at Pillsbury House Theatre was electric” (“Best Dance of 2021,” Star Tribune).
St. Paul-based choreographer Leslie Parker continues her multiyear project and leads a powerful collective of Black visual artists, musicians, and femme dance artists in a liberating world premiere performance. Through collaborative improvisation and dance experimentation, the artists explore Black pedagogy, conjuring, and activism while emphasizing remembrance to cultivate community. Reflecting on divinity and lineage, Divination Tools: imagine home draws from Blackness in music, dance, and storytelling in real-time and is the latest iteration of Parker’s epic work Call to Remember.
On Friday and Saturday, the performances begin with a processional from the Hennepin Lounge at 7:15pm. Doors to the McGuire Theater open at 7:30pm.
