“Wilson and his dancers beautifully articulate humankind’s desire to belong.” — Phindie
CITIZEN questions what it means to belong and what it means to not want to belong. The work is inspired by the histories of iconic African-Americans who faced contradictions and irony connected to individuality, anonymity, freedom, and dignity in relation to their civic duties. A provocative dialogue emerges through a series of five intricately woven solos, layered with haunting footage that suspends time and place.
