VISIONS Contemporary Ballet presents Humility and Faith, with works by Founder/Artistic Director Ranardo-Domeico Grays, a commissioned choreographer and brain cancer survivor, who inspires others. “There are no words to describe the journey, the sweat, the blood, the war that is being a black artist.” – Viola Davis
VISIONS Contemporary Ballet, based in Harlem NYC, performs three thought-provoking works choreographed by Founder/Artistic Director Ranardo-Domeico Grays in Humility and Faith, conveying messages greater than the artist, featuring the premiere of Backbone, inspired by a Black artist’s heartfelt journey, integrity and loving deeply, with music by Vir-Amicus and Queen Esther. “Let all that you do be done in love.” (I Cor. 16:14). Also being performed are Tainted Bla’k, a celebration of the beauty of being Black, set to music that is inspirational, positive and has powerful messages of Blackness composed by artists of the African Diaspora, and Roots, rooted in prayer, about self-growth, a signature work that is spiritually uplifting and an audience favorite.
