Bacchanal de Afrique 2016- Til’ Dance Do Us Part, follows the trajectory of life via the contemporary musical and dance celebrations of people of the Urban African Diaspora. Featuring a diverse group of performers of African heritage, this production will examine and show how the varied global-African experiences of music, dance, and artistic aesthetics anchor life; from the wondrous and miraculous birth to the tumultuous transition from adolescence to adulthood, the arduous search for partnering to the inevitable mystery of death.
