THE MIGRATION:REFLECTIONS ON JACOB LAWRENCE
STEP AFRIKA! / DC
“A show that needs to be experienced: a blend of incredible movement, rhythms and singing.”
— DC Theatre Scene
The Great Migration comes to life through an explosion of dance, drums and canvas.
Step Afrika! triumphantly returns to Boston with The Migration, a multimedia powerhouse production that chronicles and celebrates the paths of the brave men and women who left the American South searching for better opportunities. Inspired by painter Jacob Lawrence’s groundbreaking series about “The Great Migration,” eighteen performers transform the work into a textured, interdisciplinary movement piece incorporating South African Gumboot, Western African dance, vocals, drumming and audience participation.
