Jeremy McQueen’s Black Iris Project

A Mother’s Rite
Monday, April 26, 2021 7 PM Online
Courtney Celeste Spears by Matthew Murphy
The Black Iris Project is a ballet collaborative and education vehicle that creates new, relevant classical and contemporary ballet works that celebrate diversity and Black history. Danced by Courtney Celeste Spears (Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater), A Mother’s Rite is a socially charged solo set to Stravinsky’s iconic The Rite of Spring—performed by the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo—that explores one mother’s journey through stages of grief after being thrust into the spotlight by way of her son’s murder by police. Choreographed by Jeremy McQueen and developed in collaboration with librettist Angelica Chéri, the Emmy-nominated film adaptation of A Mother’s Right features cinematography by Colton Williams and artwork by Sophia Dawson.

Available through May 31, 2021.
