Event Details


Vincent E. Thomas looks through the lens of Marvin Gaye’s transcendent music and finds a reflection of the world today. Taking inspiration from 1971’s iconic What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye’s insights into life, love and social justice are given fresh perspectives with choreography by Vincent E. Thomas, Ralph Glenmore and Sylvia Soumah. This evening-length work features modern, jazz and West African dance designed to provoke thoughtfulness among audience members. What’s Going On is just the beginning of a conversation that can spark change in each community it touches. The Gin Dance Company has been asked to join this very special performance. What’s Going On is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by Dance Place in partnership with the CenterStage at Reston Community Center, King Arts Complex and NPN.
