Duane Lee Holland, Jr., began his professional dance career at the age of 17 with Rennie Harris Puremovement (RHPM), where he was named Assistant Artistic Director in 2008. Duane has also had the privilege of working for Ronald K. Brown/Evidence. He is currently on faculty at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee as their first Hip-Hop full-time faculty member. +++ Jennifer Harge is an performer, art maker, and educator. Trained as a modern dancer, Harge's work lies at the intersection of movement, performance art, African American culture, and choreographies of protest. Her creative work has been made for both site specific and proscenium stage performances--most recently at Detroit Institute of Arts, Music Hall Center for Performing Arts, Standard ToyKraft (NYC), and in her grandmother's basement. In 2014 she created a dance collective, Harge Dance Stories, to investigate the intersection of black bodies/stories and experimental dance making. Harge currently holds lecturer appointments at Oakland University and University of Michigan. +++ Their dance performance "Regalia: Plantation Lullabies of Royalty" will be Fri, March 3 at 12pm in the SLIPPAGE LAB. +++ Also sponsored by SLIPPAGE: Performance|Culture|Technology
