The Black Voices project is a storytelling and movement initiative based on lived experiences of students from Mason’s School of Dance. With a process created by Rafael Palacios, artistic director of Afro-Colombian dance company Sankofa Danzafro, to keep artists engaged during COVID-19 lockdowns, and to honor personal stories inspired by racial justice movements around the world, Black Voices Project aims to provide a space for students to translate their words into a movement-based performance, centering around their personal experience.  This moderated conversation and digital screening is the culmination of a semester of work, showcasing the three selected participants’ movement pieces, choreographed by Mason Dance students alongside Palacios. The live event will feature a conversation between Palacios and the participants about the creative process, their personal stories, and his company, Sankofa Danzafro.
