Continuing Dance at Illinois’ 50th-anniversary celebration, Professor C. Kemal Nance will collaborate with three alumni—Grant Hill (BFA ’18), James Washington (BFA’18), and Raheim White (BFA ’11)—to create a men’s dance titled The Adventures of Antoine in Wonderland, performed to music by Stevie Wonder. Professor Cynthia Oliver will explore Afrofuturism with three alums—Leslie Cuyjet (BFA ’04), Jessica Pretty (MFA ’16), and Angie Pittman (MFA ’15)—in collaboration with undergraduate and graduate students. Endalyn Taylor’s rich movement language will be performed by alum Raheim White (BFA ’11) along with Dance at Illinois students.
