Part three of Spectrum Dance Theater’s Insidious Trilogy, with choreography, concept and direction by Donald Byrd. Targeted completes the “Insidious Trilogy” that began in 2019 with Strange Fruit and Grief in 2022. The Trilogy wonders at Jim Crow, its history, its legacy, its transformation, and its contemporary manifestations. Targeted is an evening-length devised dance/theatre work that premieres in June 2023. The title refers to what appears to be a systematic targeting for the murder of Black people by white supremacists. Driven by “the great replacement theory” (a belief that whiteness is under threat), white supremacists have put in their crosshairs native-born black and brown people, but also non-white immigrants.
