Black Grace

Wednesday | Apr 5, 2017 | 7:30 p.m.Buy Tickets

Black Grace hails from New Zealand. With their distinctive dynamism sparked by Samoan and New Zealand heritage, the Black Grace dancers take possession of the stage—and own the audience—from the first moment. And they never let go. Eloquent yet elemental, athletic yet spiritual, they mix their cultural heritage with the contemporary choreography of Artistic Director Neil Ieremia to conquer the stage. Expect a highly physical performance, rich in the storytelling traditions of the South Pacific and expressed with raw power, unique beauty, and finesse.

“But for all the physicality that had defined it, Black Grace ended on just the right note, a gentle journey of life across the… stage, where the performers left behind not only their footsteps, but also vivid memories.”
