Dallas Black Dance Theatre completes their 38th season with classic and contemporary works that push boundaries. In this series, the company premieres a new, striking aerial work by Jamal Story entitled, What to Say? Sketches on Echo and Narcissus and a new commissioned world-premiere work by noted choreographer Daniel Catanach entitled, Surface, which focuses on the celebration, struggle and triumph of young men growing up in urban America. Also in this series, the return of Bridget L. Moore’s classic work Southern Recollections: For Romare Bearden. And you don’t want to miss DBDT’s special guest artists. Two principal dancers from the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will take the stage on Friday, May 15 to perform Pas de Duke, a virtuoso duet to the music of Duke Ellington.
DBDT’s Spring Celebration is a part of the Dallas Symphony's Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival and is presented by TACA. Guest artists are sponsored by Morgan Stanley.
