After two years of dreaming, mulling, strategy conversations, and research, Angela's Pulse has realized the creation of a digital journal! Made in partnership with the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics and funded by The Surdna Foundation, Dancing While Black: Black Bodies | White Boxes is the collaborative effort of 33 contributors, editors, artists, advisors, and designers. Intentionally keeping Blackness at the center, the Journal explores themes of Black bodies, Black space, and white boxes. This is thrilling! The journal is gorgeous, with visual curation by MBDance friend Nontsikelelo Mutiti, and it includes an essay by our own Maria Bauman-Morales!
Dancing While Black (DWB) is an artist-led initiative that supports the diverse work of Black dance artists by cultivating platforms for process, performance, dialogue, and documentation. Led by MBDance Family Paloma McGregor, DWB bring the voices of Black dance artists from the periphery to the center, providing opportunities to self-determine the languages and lenses that define their work.
