Colored

NJPAC for Jersey (New) Moves. Photos by Laura DiMeo.

 

Colored navigates the beautifully twisted spectrum of blackness that dancers Dare Ayorinde, Kyle Marshall and Myssi Robinson regularly embody. As three black dancers from varied backgrounds who work primarily with white artists, their work together in the studio leads to conversations on tokenism, appropriation, stereotype and representation. Colored is a filter for these thoughts and a celebration of cultural variation. This work features original music by Matt Clegg and was commissioned in-part by "Dance on the Lawn" Montclair Dance Festival, EMoves: Harlem Stage, and Jersey (New) Moves at NJPAC.
