Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group returns to Wesleyan with the Connecticut premiere of "Citizen" (2016), questioning 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 prevalent 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. There will be a pre-performance discussion at 7:15 p.m. facilitated by Wesleyan DanceLink Fellow Amira Chambers Ottley '18 in the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, South Gallery. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
