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.
DBDT reaches back into its repertoire to pay tribute to an iconic leader in His Grace. The dance by Christopher L. Huggins is dedicated to former South African President Nelson Mandela.
