“The Under Way”
Dancers: Stanley Glover and Roderick Phifer
Choreography: Rena Butler
Music: Darryl Hoffman
Videographer: Tara Keating
Edited by: Rena Butler

Choreographer’s note: The excerpt of this work explores the expression of escapism through the constant obstacle of shifting landscapes and environments. How is the evolved landscape informing the desperate search towards freedom? My intent is to find parallels with defining moments in US History, such as The Underground Railroad, and pair these particular events to where we are currently.

Originally premiered by BalletX on June 14 as a Works & Process at the Guggenheim Virtual Commission.

Co-Presented by Works & Process at the Guggenheim, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Vail Dance Festival, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and Grand Rapids Ballet.

This virtual commission was made possible through lead support from the Wyncote Foundation, at the recommendation of Leonard C. Haas, in addition to the National Endowment for the Arts, Anne M. & Philip H. Glatfelter, III Family Foundation, Joslyn Ewart, Arthur M. Kaplan & R. Duane Perry, Eugene Lefevre & Deborah Boardman, Mary Kirson & Bob Bierman, Joan DeJean, and The Charles & Joan Gross Family Foundation.
