“While ‘surveillance’ might conjure images of security cameras, cellphones, and other machines, What Remains considers less concrete, more culturally ingrained kinds of surveillance that shape and have shaped the black American experience.” —New York Times
What Remains unites the minds of genre-busting and Bessie Award–winning choreographer Will Rawls, poet and MacArthur Fellow Claudia Rankine, and filmmaker John Lucas. In a space representing the entombed imagination, the artists present resonant movement, language, and video inspired by Rankine’s texts on racial violence—Citizen and Don’t Let Me Be Lonely (Graywolf Press)—in response to black citizens’ visibility and disappearances. Featuring performers Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Leslie Cuyjet, Jessica Pretty, and Tara Aisha Willis.
