A contemporary dance choreography, inspired by James Somerset, one of the black slaves in Britain who escaped from his master. To avoid the shipment to the West Indian plantation. During his escape, Somerset was kidnaped by his ‘owner or master’ and placed him on the ship bounds for west. Yet Somerset thought he was free because of the treatment he was receiving but he was not.
