Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group
ONE NIGHT ONLY! A special selection of works from award-winning dance company 'Fist & Heel Performance Group'
ONE NIGHT ONLY! A selection of Fist and Heel Performance Group works which include the riveting solo INTRODUCTION a very personal recount performed by Reggie Wilson, about his experience of the Spiritual Baptists in Trinidad and Tobago; a solo from the provocative full-evening work CITIZEN; and the duet. Wilson draws from the cultures of Africans in the Americas and combines them with post-modern elements and his own personal movement style to create what he often calls “post-African/Neo-Hoodoo Modern dances.”
Reggie Wilson founded his company, Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group, in 1989. His critically acclaimed work CITIZEN, premiered 2016. Most recently, Wilson was curator of Danspace Project’s Dancing Platform Praying Grounds: Blackness, Churches, and Downtown Dance (Platform 2018) and created the commissioned work “…they stood shaking while others began to shout” specifically for the space at St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery. His newest work is titled POWER.
