Divination Tools: imagine home
According to her website, Leslie Parker’s dance aesthetic “encompasses an organic physical/movement hybrid influenced by the Black and African Diaspora: Traditional W. African, Black and African American vernacular/social dance, Improvisation, and Contemporary/Modern technique that is derived from and exchanged across multiple continents.”
In her new work, “Divination Tools: imagine home,” the St. Paul–based choreographer continues a multiyear project and leads a powerful collective of Black visual artists, musicians, and femme dance artists in a liberating world premiere performance.
Through collaborative improvisation and dance experimentation, the artists explore Black pedagogy, conjuring, and activism while emphasizing remembrance to cultivate community.
In other words, the Walker Art Center is about to get lit.
Co-commissioned and co-presented by the Walker, Pillsbury House Theatre, Pangea World Theater, and other cultural organizations, Walker Art Center presents the world premiere of Leslie Parker’s “Divination Tools: imagine home,” May 11–13, 2023.
