"I came. I saw. I loved” —Marlies Yearby, Tony-nominated choreographer of Rent on Broadway

Inspired by the life and legend of Muhammad Ali, and using Ali as an archetype to explore the universal black male struggle for identity, choreographer Christal Brown’s company INSPIRIT explores the social, economic, and emotional trappings that continually restrict African American freedoms. This powerful multimedia dance/theater piece incorporates elements of boxing, hip-hop, martial arts, modern dance, and theater to focus a historical lens on a contemporary issue.

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
