Transcend, Uplifting Their Voices


Katharine Pettit Creative – KPC is partnering with the Black Mental Health Alliance to curate a virtual dance centered concert, “Transcend, Uplifting Their Voices”, that will center Black Trans, Non Gender Conforming, and Queer Artists. Carolyn Dorfman Dance will also perform.

The collaboration celebrates Black Trans, Non Gender Conforming, and Queer Youth through dance, discussion, and poetry, offering three Black Trans Mental Health Scholarships for young artists pursuing a career in dance.

They are collaborating with multiple organizations including the International Association of Blacks in Dance and Black LGBT+ led dance companies and independent artists. “Transcend, Uplifting Their Voices” is free in order to elevate inclusiveness of all communities and introduce various genres of dance to the cross -section of people that will attend.

Their extraordinary lineup of collaborating artists include Pretty Big Movement @PrettyBigMovement (plus sized dance company led by powerhouse Akira Armstrong), Maxfield Haynes @itsmaxfield (nonbinary Ballet dancer with Complexions and Guggenheim works in process), Zaman of Zamandari and Taranng Dance Troupe @zaman_aka_sundari (1st Indo-Carribean Guyanese LGBT+ choreographer in NYC), Kemar Jewel @Kemar_Jewel (Vogue 4 #BlackLivesMatter), Carolyn Dorfman Dance @cdorfmandance (renowned dance company founded by child of Holocaust survivors) and Okwae A. Miller @okwaemiller (Atlanta based activist & artist).
