Dancing In Snow
In this new creation for LACDC, “DANCING IN SNOW” a poetic title and metaphor for the lives who’ve had to assimilate in a society of white America. George’s new work is a redevelopment of “Tainted” that had its world premiere at Odyssey Theatre in 2020George will weave in his awareness of cultural appropriation that separates Black dancing and culture from Black bodies. The overall vision of the work will be sophisticated and thoughtful, a statement of today’s Black and queer experiences. George’s movement vocabulary combines the strict lines and courtly rituals of ballet with the precision and dynamism of hip-hop and club dancing. His choreography is known for its ever-shifting play of contrasts and extremes, and for encouraging dancers to explore the edges of what they think may be physically possible.
