Never Twenty One | Smaïl Kanouté / Compagnie Vivons! (France)

Saturday, Sept. 30, 5-6:30pm

Smaïl Kanouté’s Never Twenty One is a lament, a tribute, and a protest. Its title echoes the hashtag #Never21 and refers to the countless Black men who have lost their lives to gun violence before their twenty-first birthdays. Through evocative, urban-inflected movements that interlace elements of krump, popping, baile funk, and passinho into contemporary dance idioms, the piece pays homage to young Black men in New York, Rio de Janeiro, and Johannesburg who have died from shootings.
