Choreographer TOMMIE-WAHEED EVANS will be next in the new PDP online
series. Evans will discuss his new choreographic project* HOME*.  Evans
describes *HOME*, as “a meta-narrative choreographic work that is centered
on liberation and about being black and brown, openly becoming, being
visible, and being included through a complex and socially charged spectrum
of gender.” The new work is being created for his company Waheed Works. His
dance practice is grounded in African-American culture, history,
traditions, and spirituality. He says of this work that it “aspires to
transform the ways in which we experience and understand the world. “ In
the PDP Informance audiences will get a peek into a live rehearsal in
progress and view other rehearsal videos of new material the company has
been working on before the pandemic.

PDP Presents “Informances” launched very successfully in September, online
with Zoom. Informances are expanded conversations between artists and
audience about the content of their work, ideas and inspiration.  For the
inquisitive dance audience member, Informances are a direct way to learn
more about dance, styles, history and artistic approaches through
conversation.  The Fall 2020 Zoom series is featuring not just talking
heads, but video excerpts, live rehearsals, visuals and short dance films.
