Jessica Care Moore (poet) and Aku Kadogo (choreographer, Spelman College) have developed a techno-choreopoem entitled Salt City. The work celebrates Black culture in Detroit: “the African-American presence in the city … [and] techno-music that was pioneered by African-American men straight out of the Detroit Metropolitan Area” (McFadden and Kadogo 2017). Kadogo was a founding member of the cast of Shange’s For Colored Girls and has worked in the genre for forty years.
