February ArtWalk Sponsor: : Hult Presents: Spectrum Dance Theater’s Grief, Feb. 23 & 24

Spectrum Dance Theater Artistic Director, Donald Byrd
Grief explores the traumatic experience of Mamie Till-Mobley after the 1955 murder of her son Emmett Till by white supremacists in Mississippi. In this new work, Byrd delves deeply into the fury and pain of Till-Mobley’s experience, postulating that it was her profound grief that led to her decision to present her son’s mutilated body in an open casket funeral. Whether an act of self-preservation or a decision made out of pure outrage, Till-Mobley’s choice changed the course of history. Spectrum Dance Theater/Company immerses itself in the deep-seated emotions of not just Mamie Till-Mobley, but mothers everywhere who have lost a child. Grief performs at the Hult Center February 23 & 24.
