Shamel Pitts | TRIBE Touch of RED

March 6, 2025 @ 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until March 8, 2025

Touch of RED is a multidisciplinary duet performance inspired by the rapid-fire footwork of boxing, the African American jazz dance style Lindy-Hop, Gaga movement language, and nightlife culture. Set in a stylized “boxing” ring designed by the MacArthur Fellow Mimi Lien, with the audience seated onstage surrounding it, this powerful dance duet examines the way Black men are perceived and perceive themselves in contemporary society, and how masculinity and vulnerability can be reconsidered and reconciled in a non-combative, compassionate, and healing way.

Bold. Boiled. Blood.

Touch of RED is part of the “RED Series” which continues the research to propose and share the colorfulness within Blackness, creating a body of work that supports, shelters, and cultivates an Afrofuturistic performance art landscape in which the multitude of Black diversity and capacity is realized, allowed, nurtured, and shared.

Presented by Northrop and the Walker Art Center.
