Co-presented by the City of Fairfax and the Center for the Arts at George Mason University, this Artists in Conversation lecture/demonstration with 2022/2023 Mason Artist-in-Residence Indigenous Enterprise was filmed in front of a live audience at the Stacy C. Sherwood Community Center on April 25, 2023.
This moderated lecture/demonstration with Mason Artist-in-Residence Indigenous Enterprise, comprised of champion dancers from Native American and Canadian tribes and Nations, shared the group’s heritage and culture through explosively joyous authentic dance and song in traditional regalia.
The group first stunned crowds at the Sydney Opera House in 2018, and has since appeared on NBC’S World of Dance, at President Biden’s virtual inauguration parade, and at opening night of the 2023 Super Bowl LVII festivities. “Indigenous Enterprise is rooted in tradition but also has hip-hop influences, discernible in footwork, bounce, and especially attitude,” writes The New York Times.
Followed by a Q&A with the audience, this free event was an open-to-the-public presentation of the Friends of the Center for the Arts Artists in Conversation Series, it and was offered in conjunction with the April 29 Indigenous Enterprise performance at the Center for the Arts.
