“Wilson and his dancers beautifully articulate humankind’s desire to belong.” — Phindie

CITIZEN questions what it means to belong and what it means to not want to belong. The work is inspired by the histories of iconic African-Americans who faced contradictions and irony connected to individuality, anonymity, freedom and duality, freedom, and dignity in relation to their civic duties. A provocative dialogue emerges through a series of five intricately woven solos, layered with haunting footage that suspends time and place. Wilson, whose postmodern work embodies elements of blues, folk, and African Diaspora cultures, works down to the marrow in CITIZEN, exposing isolation and the ways in which we make space for our communities and our countries, without sacrificing the authentic sense of self and the legacies of our diverse cultural identities.
