nowlater! Johnnie Cruise Mercer/TheREDprojectNYC announces new digital project/fundraiser

Isaiah Jones and Johnnie Cruise Mercer (still from PM6: thenowlater (SOUL))
 
The brilliant Johnnie Cruise Mercer/TheREDprojectNYC presents PM6 thenowlater: SOUL -- a project Mercer has described as "a dance film, a crafted gospel to ‘black revelations.' Filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and marking the 60th Anniversary of Alvin Ailey’s Revelations, the process memoir, film, and journey is guided by one question: What happens when we burn the flesh, and follow the spirit? The film marks the third journey of four within Process memoir 6: thenowlater, and is an active documentation of the company’s becoming, a shedding towards collective freedom."
 
Tickets--by sliding scale donation--are on sale from now through February 28. Reserve your ticket at: https://www.eventbrite.com/.../process-memoir-6...
 
PM6:thenowlater (SOUL) coincides with a four-week fundraiser supporting The City Dance Theater of Richmond at Pine Camp Cultural Arts Center. All proceeds from the watch party and fundraiser will go to building virtual programming, hiring instructors, and supplying artistic resources for the Richmond VA’s Black/Brown youth.
