The Alabama Dance Council presents Wideman Davis Dance in partnership with Klein Arts & Culture in the world premiere of Migratuse Ataraxia, a site-specific work performed in the Klein-Wallace House in Harpersville. 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, a curated meal, 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. Six performances and residency activities take place during January 20-26.
