The Center for Arts and Culture at Restoration Presents:

Garment of Destiny

Saturday | January 14, 2017 | 7:00PM

In celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The Center for Arts & Culture at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation presents a traditional staple in arts and culture, “Garment of Destiny” performed by the 15-member Restoration Dance Youth Ensemble with a pre-show conversation with a Civil Rights leader at 6PM. The stunning signature performances offer a new generation of young dancers the opportunity to preserve our rich heritage and look to their role in building on that legacy in the future.

 

Dr. King’s ideals have served as a roadmap to voices of creative expression for generations and the Restoration Dance Youth Ensemble’s (RDYE) newly-appointed artistic directors – internationally renowned choreographers and dancers – Ronald K. Brown and Arcell Cabuag – move the company forward in the spirit of this great 20th century Civil Rights leader with works performed by them, as well as veteran choreographers/instructors Nathan Trice, Alia Kache, Karen Thornton, and Shayla Caldwell.  The company will also dance alongside professional guest artists from EVIDENCE, A Dance Company with solos performed by some of the talented RDYE students.

 

Tickets: $20; $15 student and senior w/ID                                                                  BUY TICKETS
