DTC is pleased to partner with High Intensity Productions for a special live dance performance. Directed and choreographed by Dara J. Meredith, The Bridge of Our Roots is inspired by the powerful painting Southern Souvenir No. II by African American modern artist Eldzier Cortor. The Bridge of Our Roots delves into the idea that Black bodies, and Black women specifically, have been ostracized, dismantled, separated, and abused, all the while being the backbone and the foundation of continuity for American culture. The work showcases the complexity of what Black women in the South have experienced while having to hold the nation on its breast so that it may live and live on.
Immediately following the performance there will be a a 30 min talk-back with Dara Meredith.
