Jaamil Olawale Kosoko engages Ishmael Houston-Jones in a conversation about his collaborative work with the late artist Fred Holland. Houston-Jones and Holland met in Philadelphia in the mid-seventies and formed a strong bond. They later made performance work together in New York, notably Cowboys, Dreams and Ladders, performed at The Kitchen, which was recognized with a 1984 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award. Sections from Cowboys, Dreams and Ladders and Contact Duet will be shown.
A dance screening and discussion series, Sorry I Missed Your Show highlights dance works from the recent past to explore their canonical historicity and relationship to contemporary practice.
