Choices and Trends for Women "from Teens to Grandmothers"

Reggie Wilson Fist and Heel Performance Group #BAM 12/4- 7, 2013 Moses(es)

Reggie Wilson


Reggie Wilson, Artistic Director, draws from the movement languages of the blues, slave and spiritual cultures of Africans in the Americas, and combines them with post-modern elements and his own personal movement style to create what he calls “post-African/Neo-HooDoo Modern dances.” Fist and Heel Performance Group has been presented nationally and internationally at venues such as Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival (Lee, MA), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), UCLA Live (Los Angeles), The Flynn (Burlington, VT), Contemporary Arts Center (New Orleans), Summerstage (NYC), Linkfest and Festival e’Nkundleni (Zimbabwe), DanceFactory (South Africa), Danças na Cidade (Portugal), and Festival Kaay Fecc (Senegal), The Politics of Ecstasy (Berlin, Germany). Wilson is a 2002 BESSIE-New York Dance and Performance Award recipient and a 2002 John Simon Guggenheim Fellow.

Wilson’s recent work, Moses(es), is an evening length dance performance; it focuses on how we lead and why we follow. Grounded in Wilson’s re-reading of Zora Neale Hurston’s Moses, Man of the Mountain (the Moses story told as a Southern folk tale in African-American vernacular), and with his exploratory travels to Israel, Egypt, Turkey and Mali, Moses(es) examines the migration of peoples and culture from Africa out into the World, paying attention to the effects migration has on beliefs. Wilson’s research for this project has landed on the intersection of the origins of Monotheism and African cultures.
