Shadows of Heaven: Bronx Blues

In this visceral work, Maleek Washington confronts the complexities of family, incarceration, labor, and passage as it relates to his experience as a Black male in America. Weaving hip-hop and ballet with theater and visual art, Washington maps memories of displacement, failure, and joy in a powerful homage to family legacy. Sculpted by mentorship, storytelling, and space, Shadows of Heaven invites viewers to witness, question, and imagine the creation of this tale of Bronx blues.

Mentors: Sidra Bell, Francesca Harper

Performed by: Danielle Mills, Sophia "Wet Paint" Dawson, Chet Gold, and Maleek Washington  

Writer: Niya Nicholson
