CITIZEN – with Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group
Tigertail, as part of its April-long FIRE festival, presents noted NYC-based choreographer Reggie Wilson with his dance company, Fist and Heel Performance Group, at Miami-Dade County Auditorium to perform CITIZEN.
In this work, Wilson asks, “What does it mean to belong?” and “What does it mean to NOT want to belong?”, core questions of Reggie’s investigations for this new evening-length dance work. In CITIZEN, Wilson drills down into the human desire to belong with exponentially expanding questions: “Do the injustices in today’s America engender a feeling of belonging? What supports belonging? Is belonging solely something internal, inside the individual? Is a sense of belonging or not belonging, a private or a public matter?” CITIZEN promises to engage and compel while igniting perspectives on our compassion and humanity.
“CITIZEN drove its heart-stoppingly relentless message home without firing a shot or saying a word.” —The Philadelphia Enquirer
