Directors of Wideman Davis Dance, Tanya Wideman-Davis and Thaddeus Davis have collaborated with visual artist Michaela Pilar Brown, dramaturg Gina Kohler, culinary anthropologist and scholar Myron Beasley to challenge traditionally white antebellum domestic spaces and re-imagine the historical presence of black servitude and bondage.
