Jamillah Hinson

"Galvanize" by Beauty Breaks was a one-time audience inclusive performance. The performances worked to explore and partially understand the human connection to the Earth and her metals, specifically those connections as viewed and practiced within the Black American and Caribbean communities. How humanity has often pulled strength, both literally and figuratively, from the Earth was a running theme for all the artists.
