'Black Burlesque': All Sophistication
By Sarah Kaufman
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, November 11, 2003; Page C04
Quote:
Judging from the title he's given his new production, "Black Burlesque (revisited)," choreographer Reggie Wilson wants prospective ticket buyers to think: Girlie show. Low comedy. Cootch dancing by people of color.
Thankfully, he delivers quite a different package. Bringing his New York-based Fist & Heel Performance Group together with the Zimbabwean a cappella group Black Umfolosi and dancers from the company of Trinidad's Noble Douglas, Wilson has created a lush, reverential display of African-derived music and dance.
