Produced by Untold RVA
Choreographed by MK Abadoo
Co-Directed by Historical Strategist Free Egunfemi
Choreographer MK Abadoo and Untold RVA’s Historical Strategist Free Egunfemi hold space for Commemorative Justice with the world premiere of their site-based dance work, transforming the previously unmarked gallows at the African Ancestral Burial Ground at Shockoe Bottom by calling forth the reemergence of young Gabriel’s invisible army from the year 1800. This exciting project amplifies the deliberately submerged legacy of Richmond’s audacious warriors for Black Freedom, as the narrative continues to inspire new generations toward self- determination, intersectionality, and resistance.
