Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s artistic director, Ann Williams, narrates this unique collision of spiritual song, featuring the voices of John Archie Sanders and Sandra King Stewart, and spellbinding dance. The program consists of Talley Beatty’s Mourner’s Bench, a solo piece choreographed in 1947 as part of a five-part dance set during the Reconstruction period of the South, Asadata Dafora’s Awassa Astrige/Ostrich, another historic piece choreographed in 1932, plus a newly commissioned ballet that celebrates the life of artist Romare Bearden.
