Modern American Dance Company (MADCO) celebrates their landmark 40th Anniversary with a special dance concert, FREEDOM, a commissioned work by world renowned choreographers: Jennifer Archibold, Gina Patterson, Cecil Slaughter, and Nejla Yatkin. Our cameras followed MADCO for an entire year as they created the work for Freedom from the ground up. MADCO partnered with the Olin Library at Washington University in St. Louis researching their Henry Hampton Civil Rights “Eyes on the Prize” Collection. Through this research, MADCO brought this collection to life on stage blending dance and multi audio/visuals shedding light on civil rights history and today’s societal concerns.
State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
