Choreographer and activist Adia Whitaker has young children to protect. Too many sons and daughters from her community have been harmed by police brutality. Frustrated by how fleeting both media coverage and public attention to police injustice can be, Adia creates a performance piece designed to engage people in a new way, using her lyrics to teach children how to stay safe during encounters with police. The dance company’s powerful music and visceral movements, rooted in traditional African folklore, are captured in environments ranging from tight rehearsal spaces to busy street corners. Intimate moments between Adia and her children connect the artist’s life with her creative process.  Rehearsals are no longer just about preparing work for the stage; they are a call to action, a form of resistance and a way to connect with the community while passing lessons of strength on to Adia’s children.
