Peculiar Liberation (an adaptation of the work “Parliament” by Michael Kliën) is an interactive, interpersonal space for Black/African-American identifying folx to engage with community by way of embodied exploration and play. Centering the ideas of Black liberation and socialization, the space seeks to explore the possibilities of togetherness, when Black bodies are permissioned and supported to exist outside a marginalized context as their fullest self. Led by adjunct Professor of Dance, Ife Presswood, Peculiar Liberation incorporates music, movement, rest, play, and active witnessing to construct a Black communal social choreography.

Participation is limited to Black/African-American identifying folx.
Water and snacks provided.
Please wear comfortable clothes.
No dance experience needed.
