This country (not to mention this city) has always been divided, but the recent polarization of politics combined with the popularization of punditry makes the task of even splitting a sandwich with someone who doesn't think like you do feel impossible. The newly formed GRIEF GIRLS—a diverse dance outfit that includes Markeith Wiley, Chelsey Weber-Smith, Julia Sloane, Lillian Orrey, Erin McCarthy, Hanna Hofmann, and Matt Aguayo—will explore the increasingly wide chasm that divides us with this fresh modern-dance piece inspired by James Baldwin's inimitable play Blues for Mister Charlie, which was itself inspired by the tragic death of Emmett Till. Laura Aschoff directs, and the dancers will lead a dialogue with the audience following the performance.
