This exhibition surveys the trajectory of Byrd’s career, from his early dances in a punk-inspired aesthetic made while in residence at California Institute of the Arts near Los Angeles, through works with his own company, Donald Byrd/The Group, in New York during the 1980s and 1990s, to his arrival in 2002 in Seattle, where his commitment to social justice has found full expression in a remarkable array of dance theater works.
