slow dark dances

slow dark dances is a durational dance and film installation by choreographer Maurya Kerr that seeks to uncolonize the “invisible” whiteness of museum spaces. Building on the legacies of Black joy as a form of resistance, slow dark dances is an insurrection of quietude, rebellion as slow sway, and deep listening between Black bodies as a reparative act. The performance takes place throughout the museum building for six hours each day, 12-6PM. At 5PM on Saturdays December 3 and 10, the public is invited to participate in a collective slow dance, alone or with a friend, in the Crane Forum.
