ARTIST STATEMENT

Ebony Noelle Golden's 125th and Freedom is a public performance art project comprised of ten choreopoetic rituals staged along 125th Street between the Harlem and Hudson Rivers. The piece venerates the radical legacies of The Underground Railroad, The Great Migration, and 125th Street to explore migration, gentrification, and creative emancipation in the wake of large scale political, economic, cultural displacement. The performance seeks to collectively source tools and strategies for collective resistance and resilience that can withstand systemic oppression that is inextricably tied to living in a society that values "profit over people".

Special Note: 125th & Freedom has been developed with the support of Dancing While Black, The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, The University of Oklahoma, and Space on Ryder.
