Chuck Davis Emerging Choreographer Fellowship Showing
Part of DanceAfrica Festival 2019
Jade Charon, recipient of the 2018 Chuck Davis Emerging Choreographer Fellowship, comes to BAM with a performance that showcases the fruits of her research in Senegal and Burkina Faso. While abroad, Charon studied the Kony and N’Dep dance styles, witnessing how dance and music are used to heal communities. This ultimately led her to meld those movements with existing African-American techniques to create a cross-cultural conversation through dance and promote healing in the African-American community.
