by Shamel Pitts | TRIBE

Miami Light Project, in partnership with YoungArts, presents the South Florida premiere of Touch of RED by Shamel Pitts | TRIBE. Inspired by the quickness of footwork in boxing and the camaraderie within combat, this dance performance created by the visionary Brooklyn-based arts collective TRIBE—led by artistic director and choreographer Shamel Pitts—utilizes projections, animation, original soundscape, scenography by MacArthur Fellow Mimi Lien, lighting and movement to create an immersive world.


Age Appropriateness: 13+



"So often I felt like my vulnerability and sensitivity and fragility was a weakness. But I wish to share with people, particularly other Black boys and men, that there is power within vulnerability" (Shamel Pitts - DANCE Magazine)
