Join award-winning choreographer and two-time Kennedy Center Local Dance Commissioning award recipient Helanius J. Wilkins for Triggered, a program of dynamic contemporary dance. It will feature solo works performed by Wilkins as well as the D.C. premiere of his latest, hard-hitting work Media’s Got Me All Figured Out: Reloaded, a trio inspired by the tensions and events that fueled the Black Lives Matter movement. Joining Wilkins will be dancers from the University of Colorado Boulder and special guests. Through both physical and conceptual rigor, Wilkins knows no limits when it comes to pushing boundaries.

Please note this performance contains strong language and mature themes.

* Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the States Gallery starting at approximately 5 p.m., up to two tickets per person.

Patrons are requested to enter the Kennedy Center through the Hall of States and proceed to the Terrace Theater via the Hall of States elevators.
