The Alabama Dance Council presents Wideman Davis Dance in partnership with Klein Arts & Culture and the Town of Harpersville in the return of Migratuse Ataraxia, a site-specific work performed in the Klein-Wallace House in Harpersville, Alabama. This multimedia dance performance shifts the rules of representation in antebellum domestic spaces to memorialize the lives of enslaved individuals through movement, technology, visual installations, and community dialogue. Performers lead audience members through a series of vignettes - each staged in a separate room – to challenge notions of freedom and movement through racialized spaces. Two performances and residency activities take place during July 17-August 26, 2023.
