The Planter and Her Bondman was created for BC Beat, and it was danced by Lauren Cox (Pharrell, Alicia Keys) and Matthew Steffens (Promises, Promises, Women on the Verge…). The twice-yearly event allows theatrical choreographers to share story-driven pieces. The Planter and Her Bondman explores the early American master/slave relationship by reversing the racial roles.
