Sun, Dec 3 / 12:30–2:30 pm

Kyle Marshall Choreography

Lift is an original dance piece by Kyle Marshall Choreography, produced in collaboration with Monique Martin, Director of Programming for Harlem Stage, as a response to the ten poster artworks created for AMPL!FY, currently on view in The Project Space. A trio of dancers will perform the 10-minute piece six times during MAD’s December Studio Sunday, at 12:30 pm, 12:45 pm, 1:00 pm, 1:45 pm, 2:00 pm, and 2:15 pm.

From gun control to arts education, the body is the front line for social justice movements. Lift honors and brings attention to the physical and important work being done by the ten New York City–based social justice organizations taking part in AMPL!FY, which partnered each of the organizations with an artist or designer to create an original, thought-provoking poster on a relevant theme. Set to a rhythmic reggae soundtrack, Lift seeks to create an atmosphere of love, action, and deliverance.

Featured performers: Bria Bacon, Myssi Robinson and Nick Sciscione
