About this event

We Move in Color image

We Move in Color (WMIC) is a musical revue that seeks to capture the African American narrative through music, poetry, dance, and visual art. The revue features the visual art of world renowned painter Paul Goodnight, the award-winning photography of Lou Jones, dancer and New York Times critically acclaimed choreographer Sheryl Thomas, renowned tap-dancer Maurice Chestnut and Soul Steps trailblazer and choreographer Maxine Lyle. The revue’s soundtrack is produced by GRAMMY award winner Gen Rubin. It features recording artist Anita Faye and the poetic voice of writer Robby Thomas. The narrative is brought to life by Emmy award winner, choreographer and story designer Wyatt Jackson.

The performance illuminates, challenges, empowers, and inspires on a multi-generational level. It tells the story of pre-colonial Africa through the epochs of the middle-passage, the struggles and triumphs of African Americans in modern America, and the unapologetic aspirations of an emerging and increasingly digital future.

Think Langston Hughes meets Alvin Ailey meets visual arts meets Afro-futurism!
