Celebrate Kwanzaa with the daring theatrical dance company Forces of Nature Dance Theatre, featuring special guest poets Ntozake Shange and Sonia Sanchez.
Forces of Nature combines elements of modern dance, West African movement, ballet, hip-hop, and even martial arts. Visually inventive and creatively brilliant, these multi-ethnic dancers and drummers perform one-of-a-kind programs that are “sizzling … nothing short of sensational,” says The Washington Post.
Led by artistic director and choreographer Abdel R. Salaam, Forces of Nature spearheads a unique blend of performing arts. “Trained in modern dance, ballet, jazz and traditional African dancing, Mr. Salaam works with traditional ritual and dance forms, moving beyond reproduction or reanimation to dance that is not simply African or Afro-American, but a vibrant expression of a newer culture,” writes The New York Times.
