Harlem Stage E-Moves - Program A
Elisa Monte Dance’s “H.E.R.” pays homage to the artistic work and lives of three black, queer playwrights/writers Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Mary Powell Burrill and Angelina Weld Grimké who a century ago gave voice to the underrepresented and pushed the boundaries of society by advocating for suffrage, LGBTQ and civil rights. This work set for 8 female dancers outfitted in period-inspired costumes celebrates the sound and style of the 20’s with its ragtime musical influences but moves towards the present. “H.E.R” honors the lineage and creative legacy of women of color who refuse to bow down.
