Danspace Project Presents Ishmael Houston-Jones’ Parallels

Grab a ride on the 14A and head “uptown” to Danspace Project, at St. Mark’s Church, for PLATFORM 2012: Parallels, the latest chapter in the acclaimed artist-as-curator series. This Platform marks the 30thanniversary of Ishmael Houston-Jones’ groundbreaking piece, Parallels. Houston-Jones, a leading downtown contemporary dance presence for over thirty years, originally presented Parallels at Danspace in 1982 with a stellar group of African-American choreographers who like himself, were creating a new post-modern “black dance…outside of the mainstream of traditional modern dance.”
