Consuming Kinetics Dance Company’s (CKDC) fall 2022 concert, [R]evolution, centers themes of justice and power, and offers a vision for a more just and humxne future. In [R]evolution, we explore topics including human trafficking, the black experience, capitalism, voting rights, gender equity, and mental health access. Our choreographers and artists investigate many of the challenges we face in our society today and use movement and performance to generate dialogue and action to address these systemic issues. [R]evolution was originally scheduled in the weeks prior to the 2020 national presidential election; through this performance, we hope to not only inspire electoral action, but to support broader activist efforts to dismantle the systems of oppression we live in, including racism, white supremacy, capitalism, heteropatriarchy, xenophobia, sexism, and ableism.
Through both our concerts and through our organizational mission and vision, CKDC hopes to model how every single person has the power to create change, even when it doesn’t seem possible. More importantly, we seek to continue using dance and performance arts as vehicles for community organizing, culture-shifting, and public activism. We believe that not only is dance a catalyst for life in motion, but that dance can cultivate change on a larger scale, impact business practices, and encourage community members of all backgrounds and experiences towards social action.
