Deneane Richburg founded Brownbody, a local movement grounded in the African diaspora, to meld the expressive potential of modern dance, theater, and figure skating in service of social justice. The results have been revelatory. With this performance, Richburg premieres her new solo, Her Song. Set to music by Thomasina Petrus, the piece explores an African American girl’s foray into the predominately white world of figure skating. Richburg also has brought in Philadelphia’s FlyGround and St. Paul’s Leslie Parker Dance Project to deepen our appreciation and broaden our perspectives on performance and the African American experience.
