●The world premiere of We Stand with Those Who Stood, by choreographer Travis Gatling. This work captures the courage of social justice protesters—in Baltimore and around the world, past and present. Gatling draws inspiration especially from very young people who have stood up publicly, at risk to themselves, to push us toward a better world.
●The first stage adaptation of Full Circle’s 2020 film The Healing Project. This collaborative work choreographed by Donna L. Jacobs and Shaela Davis features an original score by Baltimore recording artist Jasmin “Jazzo” Walters. The Healing Project film reflected attempts at healing, both as individuals and as members of diverse communities, under the enormous weight of the COVID-19 pandemic and the killing of George Floyd. The new stage adaptation will stand as a testament to the courage and resilience of our communities.
●The premiere of Ire by veteran Full Circle choreographer Hope B. Byers. Byers’s engagement with history, racism, and social justice across 15 years informs this work about reframing the angry Black woman narrative.
●On Our Shoulders, by Nicole Tucker Smith, celebrates the courage of our female ancestors in laying a path of progress for their daughters and granddaughters. This work honors the particular experiences of specific women in different times and places, while also conveying ways cross-generational bonds are universal.
●Angels Unawares, a Full Circle signature work and audience favorite
by choreographer Travis Gatling. This technically stunning work reminds us that fear, awe, courage, and power are interconnected.
This project is supported by a Creativity Grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.
BRAVE is presented in partnership with the Urban Health Institute of Johns Hopkins University.
