Lula Washington Dance Theatre – 40th Anniversary Retrospective

  • Friday, October 22, 2021   8:00 PM  9:50 PM

“Lula Washington’s stature as an expresser of inner-city culture has become as distinctive and important as the social-revelatory work of enormous dance talents such as Martha Graham and Twyla Tharp.”

— Reno-Gazette Journal

This world-class Los Angeles-based ensemble is filled with youthful, athletic dancers who perform the innovative, provocative choreography of founder Lula Washington, who has steadfastly focused on using contemporary modern dance to explore social and humanitarian issues while highlighting aspects of African American history and culture. Throughout her expansive repertoire, each piece unveils honesty, integrity, and creativity of unparalleled power. This evening will include new works that she created during the pandemic and the social unrest following the death of George Floyd. (Ages 13+)
