On Friday, February 9, 2018 Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group returned to Wesleyan with the Connecticut premiere of Citizen (2016), questioning what it means to belong and what it means to not want to belong. The work was inspired by the histories of iconic African-Americans who faced prevalent contradictions and irony connected to individuality, anonymity, freedom, and dignity in relation to their civic duties. A provocative dialogue emerged through a series of five intricately woven solos layered with haunting footage that suspended time and place.
