Holding on Through Song II: Embodying the African-American Spiritual with FuturPointe Dance and First Inversion

Hailed as “a gut-wrenching, educational and emotional performance that truly rang out to the heavens and called down the Ancestors,” (CITY Newspaper) First Inversion and FuturPointe Dance join forces this year to embody through sound and movement a selection of African-American spirituals involving choir, soloists, instrumentalists, dancers and the gathered community. Words from Rochester’s own Frederick Douglass and other African-American leaders, scholars and artists provide historical context and sacred story to illuminate our journey.
