Point of Departure

Quiet As It’s Kept follows choreographer Kevin Lee-Y Green as he creates a new dance work addressing sexual trauma through  the lens of Blackness and southern culture.  Green works from his rural community in the coastal Carolina where he directs Techmoja Dance and Theater Company. Using his own story of sexual trauma as point of departure we learn about the power of dance in his life.  While there are a few tough stories in this podcast series this is a story about the power of dance and culture to build resilience in ourselves and communities.

In this episode Green starts us off sharing a little about his life growing up  in Bolivia, North Carolina and introduces us to family friend, Reverend Dierdre Parker as a way of taking us along with him on his artistic journey.
