Dancing Lab: BLKmenMOVES | 2020–2021

This year-long Dancing Lab centered on the creative development of and networking among Black male choreographers. Through the thought partnership of Charles O. Anderson (Austin, TX), cohort members Jean Appolon (Boston, MA), Kevin Lee-Y Green (Wilmington, NC), and Dominic Moore-Dunson (Akron, OH) investigated the interconnectedness of their work, processes, and identities.

On June 17, 2021, these artists gathered with NCCAkron Satellite Residency Artist Iquail Shaheed (Philadelphia, PA) and NCCAkron Graduate Assistant DeMarcus Akeem Suggs (Akron, OH/Memphis, TN) for a Dancing Conversation addressing the plurality of Black male identities, decolonized metrics of success, and embodied resistance to monolithic ideas of "Black Dance."
