Dancing Through Prison Walls

November 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

Inspired by her five-year choreographic residency at California Rehabilitation Center, a medium-security men’s state prison in Norco, California, Scripps Department of Dance faculty Suchi Branfman’s work explores the prison industrial complex through several pieces, including “Angee’s Journey,” co-choreographed with Ernst Fenelon Jr., formerly incarcerated for 14 years. Centering on Fenelon’s mother’s repeated 50-hour, 800-mile trek to visit him in prison and performed by mother, son, grandson, and a chorus of dancers, the piece “is a true testament to how art can help heal, to an artist’s devotion, to preservation of one’s spirit, and to the power of a mother’s love,” wrote dance critic Jeff Slayton.  

This program is presented in partnership with the Holmes Performing Arts Fund, Justice Education at the Claremont Colleges, and Scripps Presents.
