Brother General Gabriel

When: Thu., Oct. 10, 7 p.m. 2019

Produced by Untold RVA Choreographed by MK Abadoo Co-Directed by Historical Strategist Free Egunfemi Choreographer M.K. Abadoo and Untold RVA’s historical strategist Free Egunfemi hold space for commemorative justice with the world premiere of their site-based dance work, transforming the previously unmarked gallows at the African Ancestral Burial Ground in Shockoe Bottom by calling forth the reemergence of young Gabriel’s invisible army from the year 1800. This exciting project amplifies the deliberately submerged legacy of Richmond’s audacious warriors for black freedom, as the narrative continues to inspire new generations toward self-determination, intersectionality and resistance. Richmond City Gallows Historical Site, Shockoe Bottom A free shuttle to the venue will be available to University of Richmond students, faculty and staff
