What Karen says about this month’s picks:
“This piece was selected because of the significance of the choreographer. threads was selected to host the McKnight International Choreographer, Salia Sanou, who created the work. This is what he said about the piece: ‘Today, segregation remains a social reality, as can be seen by police violence, re-emerging neo-Nazi groups, and an administration that threatens the rights and the expression of differences, mainly racial ones. For younger generations in particular, artists must raise awareness and draw attention to those issues.’“
– Karen L. Charles, Artistic Director
