VIRTUAL EVENT – 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.
