MCA Chicago into Spotlight Black Creativity this AugustBroadwayWorld #Rennie_HarrisAugust 2, 2019
This August, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago presents three innovative performances celebrating black creativity in music and dance, from jazz and gospel to step and social dancing.
Performers Rennie Harris , Dahlak Brathwaite, Thurman Barker, and Ben LaMar Gay tell their stories in new ways that connect race, community, music, and movement.
The MCA welcomes legendary hip-hop dance theater choreographer Rennie Harris to present his new work-in-progress Rennie Harris : LIFTED, a loose adaptation of Oliver Twist.
Rennie Harris : LIFTED is presented as part of the MCA New Works Initiative.
A chorus of step dancers use movement, spoken word, poetry, and gospel-inspired singing to examine his struggle for vindication in the eyes of the law and society, looking at what the artist sees as a cultural ‘rite of passage’ for many young black men.
Dahlak Brathwaite: Try/Step/Trip is presented as part of the MCA’s New Works Initiative.
Percussionist, composer, and educator Thurman Barker presents a quintet version of South Side Suite, a new long-form ensemble work set to be released in 2019 that looks back at how Chicago’s music scene influenced his body of work.
Exploring the shapes and sounds of black social dances in Chicago, such as stepping and line dancing, the performance incorporates video projections by Kim Alpert with experimental choreography created and performed by Raquel Monroe.
are presented as part of the MCA’s New Works Initiative.

As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
