Jamal Jackson Dance Company: Bask in the Shade
Bask in The Shade is a piece that explores the "benchmark" for certain levels of acceptance and inclusion into various social circles. This work, takes an in-depth look at the influence of the surroundings on the individual while also challenging external and internal physical boundaries. Bask in The Shade investigates the layers and complexities of intra and interracial cohesion. The use of traditional Malian movement combined with an evolved contemporary African technique helps show the tug of war between more traditional and modern values. Bask in The Shade, highlights, the individual's differences, celebrates those differences, and shows how those independent traits help create a larger community.
Performed by Dianna Anderson, Rebecca Greenbaum, Karina Ikezoe, Jamal Jackson, Sydnie Liggett, Alyssa Maksym, Dana Thomas, and Gabriel Wilson is composed by Frank Malloy IV.
