to make ready again

Part of JACKs year-long series, Reparation365 (more info coming soon)

Choreographer Marguerite Hemmings  whose work reflects the rich history of African diasporan social dance, with an emphasis on dancehall/reggae culture and music  presents the latest piece in her multimedia endeavor we free, a series that focuses on what liberation means for the millennial generation. Kicking off JACKs year-long series, Reparations365, Hemmings describes to make ready again (referring to the etymology of the word reparation) as a non-performance. . . a call to a very very very obvious collective action.

Marguerite Hemmings (Choreographer) specializes in street styles, social dances, hip hop, and dancehall. She currently teaches Experimental Dancehall, a class that looks at the power of African diasporan social dance through a lens of dancehall/reggae culture and music. Marguerites choreographic work centers around liberation. She has received grants from the Jerome Foundation, Brooklyn Arts Council, Gibney, Dancing While Black, and University Settlement to further her work as an artist/organizer. As for her latest projects, she has been working on a multimedia endeavor called we free that explores the millennial generations take on liberation. The first installment of 'we free' was shown at Gibney Dance's Double Plus Series, curated by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. Since, iterations of 'we free' have been shown at Brooklyn Museum, BRIC Arts Media, and MoCada.
