Fist & Heel Performance Group

…together, they stood shaking, while others began to shout

Join Fist & Heel Performance Group, Bates Dance Festival students and faculty members, and community members from all around Southern and Central Maine in a devised performance using dances from the company’s Shaker-inspired work Power.

Fist & Heel Performance Group is a Brooklyn-based dance company that investigates the intersections of cultural anthropology and movement practices and believes in the potential of the body as a valid means for knowing. Our performance work is a continued manifestation of the rhythm languages of the body provoked by the spiritual and the mundane traditions of Africa and its Diaspora, including the Blues, Slave and Gospel idioms. The group has received support from major foundations and corporations and has performed at notable venues in the United States and abroad.  

In the spirit of building equitable relationships with our community partners, Bates Dance Festival would like to acknowledge the intellectual, creative and administrative labor that Indigo Arts Alliance has contributed to the fulfilment of Reggie Wilson’s residency. We could not have successfully executed community outreach and connections for all of the programs without the expertise of Indigo Arts Alliance.
This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals, made possible through support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
