Get into the groove with five breathtaking dances from the
company the New York Times calls “boisterous and
refreshing!” Choreographer Lula Washington’s African
Memories pulses to the beats of South African Boot
Dancing, Rites celebrates youth, love, and spirituality in
the new millennium, and Urban Themes hip-hops to the
music of the late rap star Tupac Shakur. Inspired by
Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Bernard
Gaddis’s Noche De Las Companas (“Night of the Bells”)
swirls with spirit-dancers in a moonlit garden. And Tony®
nominee Donald McKayle’s Games turns stories of inner-city
schoolchildren into a dazzling mix of modern dance,
theater, kids’ games, and a capella singers.
