Dancer Tawanda Chabikwa’s “Rituals of Identity” examines the ways movement plays a role in how cultures and individuals set themselves apart from others and how the same movements often reveal to us the ways we are similar. Enhancing the movements created and performed by Chabikwa and CoCo Loupe are videos and photographs projected on Feverhead’s walls throughout the performance recorded by dancer Nicole Garlando. Pro tip: Check out Garlando’s journal entriesbefore the show; the journal entries are the artists’ reflections on improvisational experiences between Chabikwa and Loupe before the show.
