      NextLOOK: Performing Otherness (Ainihi e Alteridade)

      NextLOOK Residency: May 18 - 22, 2020: Sinclair Ogaga Emoghene, Pablo Regis de Oliveira, and Kate Spanos  Performing Otherness (Ainihi e Alteridade) Date of public performance: Friday, May 8 at 7 pm This new dance and music project examines ainihi (“identity” in Hausa) and alteridade (“otherness” in Portuguese) based on the traditions of Nigeria and Brazil. Multidisciplinary artists Sinclair Ogaga Emoghene, Pablo Regis de Oliveira and Kate Spanos collaborate to look for both universality and cultural specificity in shared movements and rhythms. This work includes new and traditional songs and dances, a carnival-style parade, an audience feedback session, and an artist discussion. In partnership with the University of Maryland's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, NextLOOK supports the development of new music, plays, dance and other experiences by regionally-based performing artists. These artists are mentored by seasoned arts administrators from The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process. By removing logistical barriers of cost and space, and providing a sounding board for artists creating new work, NextLOOK invests in the regional arts ecology and creates an accessible, exploratory environment that connects intriguing artists with adventurous audiences.
