Genesis 4 Choreographed (Cain & Abel)

"My Brother's Keeper" was posted to YouTube about one month ago. It is a modern dance piece adapted from Genesis 4:1-15, the story of Cain & Abel. The dance is an excerpt of a larger work called "Bible Works." The world premiere was at the 14 Street Y in New York City in August 2004 and was critically acclaimed in the Arts & Leisure section of the New York Times by noted dance critic, Jack Anderson. Featured dancers are Demar Braxton as Cain and Antoine Ashley as Abel. The vocalist is Tony Sullivan. Live drumming provided by Doude C. Woods. Music, Lyrics, and Text are all created by Candice M. Franklin and Tony Sullivan. All choreography is by Candice Franklin.
