*This walking tour has been re-scheduled for May 16 at 5pm and is at capacity. To be added to the waitlist please contact Lydia Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org*
Platform 2018 considers the cultural, dance, and architectural histories of the many peoples who’ve inhabited downtown NYC and beyond. Each week the Platform will feature a commissioned walking tour led by an artist or scholar.
Brenda Dixon-Gottschild is an award-winning author, dance historian, and Professor Emerita of dance studies at Temple University. Dixon-Gottschild hosts The Book of Sugar Hill According to Brenda – A Harlem Memory Stroll, a tour of New York City’s Harlem neighborhood, where she grew up. With Wilson’s Platform interests in mind, and with the unique perspective as someone who grew up in New York City and danced here in the 1960s, she’ll share personal memories of the neighborhood, her childhood home, the church she attended, in an afternoon where history meets memory.
Danspace Project will confirm exact meeting location for the tour approximately one week in advance.
