Let Freedom Ring

In 1960, jazz musician Max Roach released We Insist: Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite. A protest album, it celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and called attention to civil rights movements in the U.S. and South Africa. More than 50 years later, the record’s message takes choreographic form in When the Wolves Came In. The brainchild of renowned choreographer Kyle Abraham and his dance company, Abraham.In.Motion, the three-part piece revisits these themes with classical and modern styles. Dancers interpret challenging issues to a score of spirituals and original works by Vermont-born composer Nico Muhly and Grammy Award winner Robert Glasper.
