The Other Side

April 21 @ 8:00 am - April 30 @ 8:00 pm


Adapted from the book by Jacqueline Woodson
Choreographed by Hope Boykin
Original score by Ali Jackson

Clover’s mom says it isn’t safe to cross the fence that segregates their African-American side of town from the white side where Anna lives. But when the two girls strike up a friendship, they’ll find a clever way to get around the grown-up rules together.

Twenty years after its first publication, Kennedy Center Education Artist-in-Residence JACQUELINE WOODSON’s simple yet powerful book The Other Side comes to life with movement from choreographer and Kennedy Center Artistic Advisor for Dance Education HOPE BOYKIN. When literal and figurative fences keep us apart, can we find the courage—and creativity—to knock them down?
