Location of Spirit is a dance and vocal work connected to the hope that is an integral part of the history of black people in America. The work was originally premiered in 2001 in Hiroshima Japan, just days before 9/11. The original performers were vocalist Vinson German and dancer/choreographer Duane Cyrus. The resonance of that experience a decade ago informs the current presentation of the work.
