Not About Race Dance critiques the unmarked predominance of whiteness in U.S. postmodernism. It cites Neil Greenberg’s Not About AIDS Dance to connect the silence around the AIDS epidemic and the unacknowledged racial politics of postmodern dance. Occupying a space defined by white artists, it contests the structural endurance of white postmodernity by disidentifying with the white cube activated by Trisha Brown’s Locus and asks how difference can be made visible through choreographic structures that do not make space for brown and black bodies.

Estimated Artist Fee: $12,000-$14,000/performance/ $18,000-$20,000/week.
