Rhythm: from the heartbeat of life we all share to the arhythmic noise of conflict, racial divide and miscommunication, Tapestry Dance Company takes a diverse and dynamic look at “The American Dream.” How does our individual uniqueness take this journey through the eyes of race, culture, gender identity and equal rights? How do we seem to recycle this place of racial tension and prejudice? … how do we get to THE DREAM from here? This world premiere work by Artistic Director Acia Gray featuring the spoken word artistry of Zell Miller III, poses these questions through a tapestry of unique individual voices. Through historical traditions and new works of tap dance set to a diversified musical score of hip-hop, jazz and American classics, Tapestry sets a rhythm of communication, hope and healing in our “what’s politically correct?” world.
Special guests include vocalist Zein Al-Jundi among others.
*Sunday shows are only at 2PM. Matinee show also on Saturday at 2PM
