Honey Pot Performance planned
Honey Pot Performance’s Juke Cry Hand Clap (2014) focuses on house music culture as a conceptual ground to explore social practices developed in Black Chicago during the long 20th century. Drawing from music forms such as blues, gospel, disco, and funk as well as dances such as the slow drag, bopping, stepping, the hustle, and line dances, Juke Cry Hand Clap explores “house” as an evolving embodied lineage of African American forms of making community and of cultural resistance influenced by the Great Migration from the rural South to the urban North (1910s through the 1970s).
