This vibrant movement, sound, and language based-work by dance legend and choreographer Dianne McIntyre explores how dance and music “speak” to each other. With original music by celebrated composer Diedre Murray and poetry by Obie-winning playwright Ntozake Shange, the performance uses dance to explore how language creates worlds of beauty, alienation, harmony, tension or peace. This elegant and captivating work unites a live jazz quartet and a vigorous company of dancers to explore the deep rivers of communication in Black American history and culture.
