POWER is the working title of Reggie Wilson’s new evening-length dance performance work. It re-imagines compelling core Shaker values, contributions, movement practices, and histories through a postmodern American lens. This work builds on Wilson’s investigations on the early evolution of African American spiritual worship in the pantheon of American Christian religions and expands on his research into African American shout traditions. Points-of-inspiration for this work include black Shaker Eldress Mother Rebecca Cox Jackson, Shaker foundress Mother Ann Lee, The Great Awakenings and American Utopianism, Binary Opposition, and foundational research from his early work, The Littlest Baptist. Estimated artist fee: Estimates do notinclude housing and local travel: $24,500/half week residency; $34,000/full week residency
