Wideman Davis Dance in Migratuse Ataraxia
Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Theatre
1 Richard Arrington Jr Blvd N,
Birmingham, AL 35203
Migratuse Ataraxia is a multimedia dance performance that shifts the rules of representation in antebellum domestic spaces to memorialize the lives of enslaved individuals through movement, technology, visual installations, a curated meal, and community dialogue. Performers will lead audience members through a series of vignettes – each staged in a separate room – that de-territorializes each room and challenges notions of freedom and movement through racialized spaces.
Migratuse: Migrated, departed, to have gone away, having been changed, and the habitual patterns of moving from one place to another.
Ataraxia: Calmness or a peace of mind, emotional tranquility.
