WHACK, WHAM! YHOP ABOW! Get In Mode!!! “Ode 2 Club Sugar” is a (re)imagined day in the life of teenagers in Milwaukee as they transition from after-school detention to a fun night at Club Sugar. This piece is an homage to Club Sugar, a teen club in Milwaukee, WI (MKE), from 2007 -2010. Club Sugar was a teen haven every weekend, and some weekdays, from 9:00 pm - 1:30*-ish in Milwaukee’s Southside neighborhood, Walker Point. The nights spent at Club Sugar were a catalyst for the MKE dance style Bangin/Twangin, which is intensely centered on improvisation and battling. At Club Sugar, MKE dances grew and blended with other popular Black social dances of the Midwest and U.S. mainstream to create a subculture that shifted, expanded, and represented MKE culture.
Rooted in the principles of Sankofa, “Ode 2 Club Sugar” invites the audience on a journey to the special place that encouraged MKE teens to honor their humanity, explore evolving identities, and liberate themselves from the stress of living. As teens relish in one of a few spaces where they are centered and celebrated for all that they are and are making themselves to be, we see the sacred tracings that define MKE dance.
