“POWER” to be performed on ’62 Center MainStage on Sat. Oct. 15, 8pm by Brooklyn-based dance company Reggie Wilson/First and Heel Performance Group.

Choreographer Reggie Wilson conjures the secret histories of 1800s Black Shaker communities, many led by women. Limited documentation exists on specific Black Shaker practices, but Wilson’s choreographic research gives form to beliefs shared by Shakers and African diasporic belief systems in a dual-Godhead, racial and gender equality, fractal movement patterns, and advancements in technology as acts of worship.

Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group is a Brooklyn-based dance company that investigates the intersections of cultural anthropology and movement practices and believes in the potential of the body as a valid means for knowing.
