Public Program: Rashid Johnson: The Hikers – Performances and Talk
5:00pm — 8:00pm
A dance work conceived of by Rashid Johnson and choreographer Claudia Schreier, The Hikers follows the path of two solo hikers, both Black: first alone, then crossing each other’s path—an encounter that unfolds in sometimes lithe, sometimes lumbering balletic movements, challenging modern conceptions of blackness and fetishizations of black bodies in motion. In collaboration with choreographer Claudia Schreier, Johnson explores the physical and psychological repercussions that attend the black body in space.
This program is free with Storm King admission. Please see The Hikers main page for details and ticketing >
