HotHouse Presents Craig Harris’ Brown Butterfly: Convocation Consecration
HotHouse presents Craig Harris’ Brown Butterfly: dedicated to Muhammad Ali
Brown Butterfly is Craig Harris’ tribute to the magical attributes that have sustained African Americans for more than 400 years: weightlessness, grace, speed, and an ability to walk in space. “I’m telling the story about one of my greatest heroes,” Harris says.
Harris regards Muhammad Ali as one of the prime catalysts of the racial and cultural transformation that took place in the United States in the 1960s. Someone whose impact extended well beyond his appeal as a champion in the boxing ring. Brown Butterfly takes viewers on a multi-layered, percussive “dance” and presents the power of a man who stood as a humanitarian and beacon of hope for millions through the complex racial, social and political environment of the time.
