Name: “846” by the Jamal Jackson Dance Company, presented as part of Crellin Park Day
Date: August 6, 2022
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
August 6, 3 PM at Crellin Park. Free and for all! PS21 returns to Crellin Park Day with an interactive program featuring “846,” a retelling of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring.” “846” by the Jamal Jackson Dance Company reimagines Stravinsky’s seminal work in our present day USA. The 1913 score depicts rituals celebrating the advent of spring, after which a young girl is chosen as a sacrificial victim and dances herself to death. “846” reflects upon our “everyday” filled with love, loss, appropriation, fear, and judgment, and interrogates our nation’s compulsion with sacrificing Black bodies in order to thrive.
