It's Showtime NYC! / Maimouna Keita African Dance Company / Kash Gaines’s Caged Birds

Thursday, July 11, 2024
6:00 pm -
Von King Park
670 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11216

For over 30 years Bed-Stuy’s own Maimouna Keita African Dance Company has celebrated the rich art and heritage of Africa and its diaspora through extensive classes and performances. Named after Bambara singer and dancer Maimouna Keita and led by her granddaughter, Artistic Director Marie Basse-Wiles, the company also produces an annual conference that hosts dance, music, and cultural workshops helmed by masters from Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and the US. It’s Showtime NYC!, is a company of dancers with a history of performing on New York’s streets and subways.

Find out “What time is it” when It’s Showtime NYC! performs a highlight from Pyramid, a brand new work by Flexer and artistic director Cal Hunt and composer cellist and bonebreaker Johnathan “Akuma” Moore. Culminating a community residency at Herbert Von King Cultural Center made possible through SummerStage, a space many company dancers consider a second home, the work explores how New Yorkers are, by nature, archaeologists. Be it graffiti, hieroglyphics, or freestyle dance on the street, lived stories are shared to those willing to pause and take in the messages.

Performer/Documentarian Kash Gaines debuts the live premiere of Caged Birds featuring a cast sharing intimate stories of perilous encounters with law enforcement inside and outside the MTA system. See the craft they’ve honed performing on the city’s biggest stage intersecting with their future ambitions. This performance is in conjunction with the broadcast and streaming premiere of Caged Birds Fly on ALLARTS.

Presented in partnership with Works & Process, Caged Birds, Pyramid and Maimouna Keita African Dance Company are all Works & Process commissioned projects with residency support from Works & Process LaunchPAD.
