It was a joy to perform with multicultural dancers as well as modern dancers together in a project called "Erasing Boundaries," which was directed by George Faison, producer at the Faison Firehouse and a Tony and Emmy Award winner. It was a great opportunity for me to work with Mr. Faison. I went to his dance studio in Harlem several times for group rehearsals.

Our collaborative dance piece received a standing ovation. Wow! This was a really good feeling, and a different joy of stage performance than I had ever experienced. I truly enjoyed the company of Lotus's dancers and working with Faison's family. Thank you so much, George and Lotus, for giving me this great opportunity!

Otis Redding's sassy, sizzling music sets ... [cached]

Otis Redding's sassy, sizzling music sets the stage for George Faison's playful battle of the sexes. The yearning sensuality of such timeless songs as "Satisfaction," "Try a Little Tenderness," "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and other favorites bursts through this sexy, charming and witty suite.

George W. Faison danced with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater from 1967 through 1970. He was the first African American choreographer to win a Tony Award for his choreography in The Wiz (1975). In the early 1970s, he created two modern American dance classics, Suite Otis and Slaves for the George Faison Universal Dance Experience. He choreographed for Broadway and choreographed and directed numerous productions for regional theaters. In the early 1980s he changed his professional career focus to writing, directing and choreographing dramatic and musical theater pieces. He co-produced and wrote the Cosby Salutes Ailey NBC TV Special celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. He is co-founder and the producing artistic director of the Faison Firehouse Theatre, located in a former Harlem firehouse. In addition to the theatre, he has developed a unique performing arts-based outreach and youth theatre project, the Faison Firehouse Respect Project.
