Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company fall 2019 concert season will present Southern Exposure on October 4 and 5 at 7:30 p.m. in White Recital Hall at the Performing Arts Center on the UMKC campus. Southern Exposure is a dance/theater piece by Mary Pat Henry delving into experiences of racism and hatred in the South during 1960s segregation and integration. Using archival photographs and film, spoken word and music from the period, Southern Exposure is a multi-media work supplemented with photographs and artwork from “The Klan Room” by William Christenberry. Southern Exposure forces us to look into our past to examine current race issues in the United States today. This expanded recreation of this original work has been made possible by an Arts/Works Award from The National Endowment for the Arts.
