    MacArthur Fellow poet Claudia Rankine, Bessie Award-winning choreographer Will Rawls, and filmmaker John Lucas present What Remains, a collaborative performance that uses movement, language, and video to explore the dualism of visibility and disappearance of black citizens in society. What Remains is staged at the MCA Warehouse in a dreamlike environment reminiscent of an entombed imagination, where performers Leslie Cuyjet, Jessica Pretty, Tara Aisha Willis, and sound designer Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste respond to notions of violence, resistance, and identity through dance and a resonant, ghostly chorus.
