Atlanta Choreographer Highlights Social Justice Through Movement

Jan 23, 2019

Sit-ins, marches and rallies often come to mind when people think of activism. Atlanta choreographer and dancer Raianna Brown has another spin on it. In 2016, she gained attention online for kneeling during a college football game. Back then, she was a 22-year old member of the Goldrush dance team at Georgia Institute of Technology.

 

Now, Brown is continuing her advocacy with movement. She visited “On Second Thought” to talk about her new dance production, “Skid.” It’s a celebration of the vulnerability and strength of humanity. Komansé Dance Theater takes a look at homelessness and gentrification in the metro Atlanta area and beyond. 

 


"Skid" opens at Georgia Tech's Ferst Center Jan. 25 and Jan. 26.
