Leslie Parker Dance Project, LLC
utilizes a multidisciplinary point of view for making dances that engage
audiences and communities as witnesses/observers/participants with diverse knowledge, therefore, creating opportunity for risk-taking and for reflection from a Black and African American lens collectively.
Practice: To adapt ancestral knowledge within a contemporary context so that the work moves beyond dance technique only to in part transform, to acknowledge, to decolonize and to claim personal narratives more boldly.
Values: Taking necessary risks for Collaboration + Dialogue + Action that is open to cross-pollinating across sectors as a means to further anti-racism as survival and beyond. LPDP values generative processes that elevates visibility of Black, Native and POC stories - encouraging holistic well-being, equity and humanity.
