States of Hope: HopeBoykinDance

Durham native and former Alvin Ailey dancer Hope Boykin brings States of Hope, a powerful and honest work of dance-theater, for its hometown premiere. In this fully-scripted autobiographical performance, Boykin narrates her own journey as a dancer and artist as seven dancers move on stage to an original score by Ali Jackson. Each dancer embodies elements of Boykin's personality, laying bare inner thoughts and conflict as they interact with each other. This profound, ambitious, vulnerable work is a powerful excavation of an artistic life.
