Spring's here and, with it, a fresh new season of E-Moves at Harlem Stage, featuring commissioned works by "emerging, evolving and established" choreographers of color, as writes E-Moves series curator Charmaine Warren.
Running from Fridays and Saturdays only, March 31 to April 8, the programming spans a range of interests--iconoclastic approaches to ballet to an innovative blend of Indian and contemporary dance. Choreographers include Francesca Harper ((y)ourstory : Chapter one, a work in progress), Parijat Desai (JustLikeThat), Kyle Marshall (Colored) and Leyland Simmons (Traffic).
E-Moves 18 also promises nightly “Pop-Up” performances by renowned artists such as tap dancer Dormeshia Sumbry Edwards and dancers from the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company.

Friday, March 31: Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards: Tap solo created & performed by Dormeshia Sumbry Edwards
Saturday, April 1: Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE: SHE IS HERE (2016), Choreography: Ronald K. Brown, performed by Annique Roberts.
