Deeply Rooted Dance Theater (DRDT) offers classic revivals, company repertoire and a preview of a collaboration with gospel artist Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers. Reaffirmed/Reimagined takes place December 13–15 at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts on the University of Chicago campus.
Reaffirmed/Reimagined features revivals of two classic DRDT works: DRDT Co-Founder and Creative Director of Deeply Rooted Productions Kevin Iega Jeff’s Dedication (1982), a story of an ancestral elder that passes the legacy of life onto children of the new world, and Essence – A Portrait of Four Women (1972), that tells the story of four women of color and how their lives intersect on an emotional journey of self-actualization and sisterhood, by Martial Roumain. Also on the program are three works from the company repertoire. DRDT Co-Founder Gary Abbott’s Parallel Lives (2018) is a contemporary narrative inspired by poor, working women who have shared life-changing events, both beautiful and tragic, with original music by Evangelos Spanos based on Vivaldi’s “La Folia.” Forces (2018), an exploration of the spiritual influences on daily consciousness, by Artistic Director Nicole Clarke-Springer, with music by Marcelo Zarvos. When Men (2016), which explores the idea of abandoning stigmas to strengthen from within, is choreographed by DRDT company member and Assitant Artistic/Rehearsal Director Joshua L. Ishmon, with music by Ananda Giri and Paolo Nutini and text by Charlie Chaplin.
