Deeply Rooted Dance Theater
50 East Congress Parkway Chicago
Reimagining contemporary dance by uniting modern, classical, American, and African-American traditions, this remarkable company, celebrating its 25th anniversary, returns to the Auditorium Theatre's historic stage after 22 years. WTTW says "Deeply Rooted dancers set the stage on fire. The dancers are striking, with superb technique and an emotional heat ideally fitted to the choreography." The program's first act features work by nationally renowned choreographers including the company premiere of Ulysses Dove's Episodes, followed by the second act finale, GOSHEN, the Story of Exodus, with music by Grammy Award-winning producer, composer, and gospel artist Donald Lawrence.
