King Arts Complex – Dance Studios
Artistic director and choreographer André M. Zachery calls upon his familial lineage in the southern United States and Haiti as well as his upbringing on the south side of Chicago to construct an interdisciplinary performance about “marooning” in the 21st century. Historically, maroon colonies were liberated communities of Africans who escaped to hills, mountains, and forests upon their arrival to the Americas in the 17th and 18th centuries. We invite the community to join Andre to explore Afrofuturism, dance, connection to the ancestors and a special screening of a film directed by Andre Zachary.
