HAMAPAH | THE MAP
HaMapah/The Map is a multimedia, genealogical dance journey that traces the intersections of former Alvin Ailey dancer Adam McKinney's African American, Native American, and Jewish heritages. HaMapah/The Map weaves contemporary dance with archival material, personal interviews, Yiddish and American songs, and video set to traditional, contemporary, and classical music. In the piece, directed by Daniel Banks, McKinney explores issues of identity, heritage, and ancestry. As part of the program, DNAWORKS Co-Directors McKinney and Banks lead a community storycircle with the audience about the core ideas of the piece.
