"Black and White but Not Grey" is a dance that examines the idea of "community" and how various conflicts might affect that ideal.
The dancers of Oiseau Noir Danse - Kelsey Anderson, Sabrina Benazzouz, De'Ondre Goodley, and Megan Reaux - have been exploring space and ideas that do not necessarily affect them but have seen happen in the lives of their friends and family. The idea of community versus conflict is relevant in today's social climate and we are happy to bring to life these emotions through movement.
This piece is under the direction of Melinda (Mindi) Caubarreaux, as part of a project guided by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Department of Dance faculty in partial fulfillment of work towards an MFA in Performing Arts: Dance.
The public may arrive at 4:30 p.m. with the showing beginning at 5:00 p.m. We will have a talk back session (Q&A) afterwards, and the event will event around 6:00 p.m.
Please RSVP on our eventbrite link - We are taking only a limited number of people. While this event is free, we are accepting donations (on the eventbrite link And/Or at the event) to help cover the costs of rehearsal time, space, and dancers' salary.
Thank you for your interest and attending! We appreciate your support of the arts!
