DANCING THROUGH PRISON WALLS: A CONVERSATION WITH SUCHI BRANFMAN AND D. SABELA GRIMES
November 29, 2018 • 7:00 pm PST
Organized by activist, educator, and choreographer Suchi Branfman in 2017, Inside Outside brought a group of choreographers and artists to share their work and creative process with incarcerated men inside the California Rehabilitation Center, a medium-security state men’s prison in Norco, California. In deep collaboration with these incarcerated men earlier in the year, Branfman had spent three months co-choreographing SUSTAIN around the question “what sustains you?” She will be in conversation with multidisciplinary artist and educator d. Sabela Grimes, who joined Branfman and other artists at the California Rehabilitation Center to teach and share choreography from his work Bulletproof Deli, that complicates constructed notions of masculinity and manhood within the confines of a “Chinese” take-out spot in North Philadelphia. Join Art + Practice to discuss their experience creating and sharing their art with incarcerated individuals through prison walls.
