“Haunting… gripping… revealing.” —Providence Journal
Join Contemporary Dance Theater as we open our 43rd Season. CDT is proud to present Everett of Rhode Island, performing the Freedom Project
Contemporary Dance Theater, in partnership with The Yard, Brown University and NPN, supported the development of Everett’s newest work, Freedom Project. In this regional premiere, Everett will use dance, theater, and spoken word to engage the audience in a unique discourse about the racial and socioeconomic disparities and injustices within the US prison system.
Freedom Project is a multimedia physical theater piece that interweaves gripping personal stories, evocative imagery, and athletic choreography in an examination of mass incarceration in America. With material drawn from extensive research, as well as personal experience, the Everett Company calls upon our common humanity to challenge the conditions that have transformed the “land of the free” into the most incarcerating country in the world.
Meet Everett at a reception following Friday evening’s performance at the Aronoff. FREE
