No Boundaries Performance Series

Direction and choreography by Will Rawls
Text by Claudia Rankine
Iseman Theater, 1156 Chapel Street
Bessie Award-winning choreographer Will Rawls and best-selling poet and MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Claudia Rankine team up for a unique live performance. Layered with poetry, dance, and music, What Remains exposes society’s role in the disturbance and murder of its black citizens and responds with a resonant, ghostly chorus.
What Remains was commissioned and developed by Live Arts Bard at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College, where it received its world premiere in April, 2017, with additional commissioning support from the American Repertory Theater, Yale Repertory Theatre, and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s Crossing the Line Festival.
Running time: Approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
Talkbacks will follow each performance.
This Presentation is funded by Root Boy Slim Fund
