    (Re)current Unrest: Dance
    (Re)current Unrest
    Online performance
    Saturday, October 10 at 7:30pm & Sunday, October 11 at 7:30pm
    Charles O. Anderson’s (Re)current Unrest is an evening-length immersive performance installation ‘ritual’ on the sonic foundation of Steve Reich’s three earliest works: It’s Gonna Rain (parts 1 and 2), Come Out, and Pendulum. This work utilizes movement, media and powerful imagery to meditate on the “American Dream” and Black nihilism, borne of the current racially charged moment.
