“There’s hardly a minute in this hour-long show that isn’t stirred by singing, clapping, stomping, and drumming.”—The Arts Fuse
Reggie Wilson’s new evening-length work POWER reimagines compelling core Shaker values, contributions, practices, and histories through a postmodern American lens. This work builds on Wilson’s investigations related to the early evolution of African American spiritual worship in the pantheon of American Christian religions and expands on his research into ring shouts and African American worship.
“It’s a trip to see the world through Mr. Wilson’s eyes.”—The New York Times
The presentation of “POWER” by Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
