“I cant really hear the audience applause when Im on stage. Im totally immersed in the piece. But sometimes I get a lot of it and wonder, Now, why did they applaud here? If its a white crowd, they usually applaud because they think its a pretty movement. If its a black crowd, its usually because they identify with the message.”
—Judith Jamison (b. 1944)
