Influenced by their Pacific Island heritage, Black Grace’s unique fusion of contemporary and traditional movement has earned acclaim from audiences and critics across the globe. Their first Northrop appearance will feature a wide variety of works that are eloquent, yet elemental; athletic, yet spiritual; accompanied by body percussion and live drumming. In Crying Men, artistic director Neil Ieremia explores the impact of colonization and the loss of matriarchal balance in Pacific culture, with a focus on the concept of masculinity.


This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from Minnesota State Arts Board and the Crane Group.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
