A community-oriented dance performance set to the ground-breaking music of Marvin Gaye.
Saturday, April 27 - 8pm
Sunday, April 28 - 2pm
With the transcendent music of Marvin Gaye as his lens, Vincent E. Thomas finds a reflection of our past in our world today. Taking inspiration from the inimitable protest album “What’s Going On” - whose dual message of frustration and hope regarding social ills and inequity still resonate today - Marvin Gaye’s insights into life, love and social justice are given fresh perspective. Featuring many of Gaye’s classic hits, the choreography ranges from contemporary to West African, and it pays homage to American social dances and gospel traditions.
"What’s Going On?" has received rave reviews throughout the country, performing to sold out audiences at extended runs. Offering “the sweetest solace possible: people coming together,” (The Washington Post) this is a thought-provoking and interactive performance, designed to spark conversation and ignite hope in each community it touches.
