The New Victory Theater invites you to experience the journey of the millions of African Americans who moved from the rural South to the urban North to rebuild their lives in this polyrhythmic performance from Step Afrika!
A beat for every brushstroke, Step Afrika! brings to life Jacob Lawrence's The Migration Series, the landmark collection of paintings about the largest demographic transformation in U.S. history. Fusing body percussion, tap, and contemporary dance with live gospel, jazz, and blues, the world's first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping uses uniquely American art forms to tell this uniquely American story. Recommend for ages 7 and up.
