Deeply Rooted Dance Theater Reaffirmed/Reimagined – Youth & Senior

Special performances for youth and senior audiences Wednesday, December 11 at 10 a.m. and noon features excerpts from this season’s repertoire. 

“Reaffirmed/Reimagined” features revivals of two classic DRDT works. Essence – A Portrait of Four Women (1972) by Haitian-American choreographer Martial Roumain, shows the lives of four women of color—a domestic worker, a high-value prostitute, a biracial African-Latina woman navigating two worlds and an urban woman surviving through race-based rage—intersecting on an emotional journey of self-actualization and sisterhood, set to music by legendary songstresses Nina Simone, Zulema, Roberta Flack and Nikki Giovanni with the James Cleveland Choir. Kevin Iega Jeff’s Dedication (1982) depicts an ancestral elder passing the legacy of life onto children of the new world, set to music by Quincy Jones, Clause Ogerman and Patti Austin.
