Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s Cultural Awareness series is a time to embrace and celebrate cultures.

Dance, poetry and a live Second Line brass band are used to honor the twelve-year-anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Choreographer and Hurricane Katrina survivor Michelle N. Gibson weaves movement and traditions of New Orleans culture into the dance Displaced, Yet Rebirthed. Experience the work His Grace by Christopher L. Huggins that pays tribute to one of the most iconic leaders of our time, former South African President Nelson Mandela during the 100th year of his birth.
