INTRODUCING THE FJK DANCE “BLACK BOX” PERFORMANCE SERIES A FUSION OF CULTURE AND DANCE
The “Black Box” dance series found its inspiration from FJK’s weekly site specific performance workshops developed for NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County (Brooklyn, N.Y.). Believing dance has the power to bring people together and insert positive energy into our communities, the FJK Dance NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County program hopes to remove the stigma of, and enable the public to better understand, psychiatric illness and wellness. Site specific performances from the FJK repertoire, performed throughout the hospital, hope to create an emotional difference for patients and staff. The John Jay series will help refine that role, with the audience “Talk Back” serving to explore the depth of each repertoire piece and discuss what dance can do to facilitate mental health. Positive images will be explored.
