Mud Water Theatre and the Dance Brigade's Dance Mission Theater present:|
"MUD WATER II"
The second and final installation of the Mud Water project, a magnificent blend of Ballet and the Oakland originated street dance style known as Turfing.
Turfing, which arose in the 1990s in the midst of gang violence, poverty, and a range of other social ills, is based on the various dances of different neighborhoods or "turfs" of Oakland. As an acronym, it serves as a reminder to its participants to Take Up Room on the Floor.
The project explores the trajectory and different mutations of anti-black racism in the U.S. in search of its root causes. History has a way of repeating itself. But the mere observation of factual events is only one part of it. To understand deeper, we peel away the many layers of "civilization." We might then find ourselves staring into what it means to be human -- to have come from the mud and water of this earth.
Using dance, projections of motion graphics, text, sound design and music, we take the audience with us through the murky, cold swamps of truth, from which we emerge everyday with hope and new understanding.
March 4, Saturday, 8pm
March 5, Sunday, 4pm and 7pm
