Rejoice! Diaspora Dance Theater presents Uprise, an evening of choreographic works by Oluyinka Akinjiola, Michael Galen and Jamie Minkus, featuring musical guest Amenta Abioto and art exhibits by Sharita Town and Intisar Abioto. Uprise features a body of choreographic works addressing power, oppression, and community. Inspired by Angela Davis's desire to see liberation movements become intersectional, they are bringing expression to the many ways race, class, culture and history influence power.
There will be one special pre-show performance on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.
