Nimbus Dance in: STAND UP

October 23, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


NimbusPRESENTS: Stand Up 

October 23, 2pm 


Celebrating artists as leaders, communicators, and voices of conscience and protest, Nimbus curates a program proclaiming the critical importance of social justice issues of the current moment, and the thread of these issues throughout American history.

People Place Disruption, a work created in collaboration with Jersey City artists, filmmakers, and video artists as a dance film in Spring 2021, returns as a live performance this season. Lauded as “impactful” and “accomplished” the work features emerging choreographic voices within Nimbus. Also on the program: two masterpieces of the 20th century: Strange Fruit (Dr. Pearl Primus, 1943) and Lynchtown (Charles Weidman, 1936), and a new work created by Hudson County youth about the current social justice issues they feel empowered to “Stand Up” against.
