2020–2021 44TH SEASON CALENDAR

January 2021

If you just want a good laugh, you don’t want to miss Monologues choreographed by DBDT veteran dancer Sean J. Smith. The work showcases a series of satirical sketches featuring characters dealing with anxieties, like ‘Ken and Barbie’, nerdy spelling-bee contestants, the wife of an alcoholic, and a lottery winner. Following the virtual presentation of the 2013 Monologues performance, the audience will have the opportunity to engage with Smith and current dancers during a Dancemaker’s Discussion.

The choreographic brilliance of the late Talley Beatty is exemplified in The Mourner’s Bench. Beatty created the solo in 1947, which portrays an emotional, spiritual struggle with social inequity in the rural South after the Civil War.

Dallas Black Dance Theatre produces a dramatic perspective on Civil Rights activism through movement, set to the musical genius of Odetta Holmes in ODETTA.  Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Associate Artistic Director Matthew Rushing choreographed this work to pay tribute to Odetta’s musical range of folk, gospel, and blues music.

Tickets for the remaining performances of the season go on sale soon.
