About the Show

SpiritYouAll
Choreographed and performed by BaKari Ifasegun Lindsay


SpiritYouAll is a personal investigation of what is left to a dancer when the body is weak from sickness, but the spirit continues to soar. This deeply personal dance statement by choreographer and performer BaKari Ifasegun Lindsay, invites everyone to experience a sense of resilience and the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity. “I couldn’t do anything without faith. I couldn’t open up my eyes, I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t dance.” Embracing physical limitations without abandoning the fearlessness within, the work uses an improvisational approach to uncover the never-ending exploration of the human spirit and the many ways in which spiritual awakening manifests.
