When the music changes, so does the dance. - African proverb
Join Dance Repertory Theatre in a celebration of the influence of African American culture upon contemporary dance in the twenty-first century. Momentum features nationally renowned artists including Rennie Harris, Abby Zbikowski, Adrienne Hurd, Netta Yerushalmy, Ananya Chatterjea, Charles O. Anderson and Lyn C. Wiltshire, as well as one of the ensemble's first tap performances, choreographed by co-artistic director Jeremy Arnold.
"America grew up with dance, and dance continues to be a barometer of life in America," shares co-artistic director Charles O. Anderson. "From the street to the stage, dance in America captures everyday gestures, social dances, cultural retentions, social and political issues and spiritual principles. These sources - coupled with a spirit of independence, risk-taking, exploration and persistence - have helped to form what we know today as American contemporary dance."
