Wilmington 1968: Commissioned Performances
Throughout the series of summer exhibition focused on the Civil Rights Movement, three original performances by local and regional performing artists will respond to the disturbances and subsequent occupation in Wilmington. These interdisciplinary performances and unique collaborations will combine music, visual arts, dance, and storytelling to interpret, give context, and call us to action around the events that shaped our nation and city.
Two performances pair artists working in different disciplines. Collaborations include musician Jea Street with storyteller TAHIRA, and dancer Ashley Davis with visual artist Terrance Vann. A third performance will include a two-week residency with performing artist Jaamil Kosoko.
Jaamil Kosoko: August 9 | 6:00 p.m.
TAHIRA and Jea Street: August 19 | 1:00 p.m.
Ashley Davis and Terrance Vann: September 16 | 1:00 p.m.
