Press and info KMC Website Philadelphia Review NYC Review
"Rise is inspired the shout tradition of the black church, the transcendent spirit of club music, and aims to hold the joy that dancing brings to our lives.
Gathering to honor, witness, and celebrate others is an ancient ritual, deeply missed in this time of pandemic isolation. This dance celebrates the life in our flesh,
makes space for the spirit, and honors the power of our humanity through the sacredness of assembly.
Rise was commissioned by THE SHED Open Call 2021 and was supported by a residency at the Nimbus Arts Center."
