Black Like Me: An Exploration of the Word Nigger is a multidisciplinary dance work that explores the reverb of a single word in a community. It considers the effects of the word nigger, all its permutations, its history and its casual use in Hip Hop culture. Comprised of 5 sections created in collaboration with two of America’s leading Black media-design technologists, original sound composition and an iconic activist; it asks if it is possible to redefine a word that was intended to belittle a people.

About the Choreographer

Jade Solomon Curtis is a dance artist and choreographer who integrates classical and African American vernacular movements with mixed-media and Hip Hop culture. Through the lens of a contemporary black woman, Curtis’ works ponder tradition and reinvention, social justice and injustice, social constructs as well as intuition and logic- often resulting in a counter-narrative and the subversion of an idea.Read More.

“Language plays an integral role in shaping our thoughts and opinions. It is of great importance to investigate how we use words as we move forward in our journey.” - Jade Solomon Curtis
