BLACK HISTORY MONTH EVENT
Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago
Students, Faculty, and Staff are invited to a musical concert and cultural immersion featuring the Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago.
Founded in 1972, The Chicago-based Muntu Dance Theatre performs authentic and progressive interpretations of contemporary and ancient African and African-American dance, music, and folklore. A colorful and dynamic Company, Muntu brings its audiences out of their seats and into the aisles with its unique synthesis of dance, rhythm and song. The Company is highly regarded for its innovative repertory, preserving traditional African dance while creating new works that build on African, Caribbean and African-American cultural traditions. They carefully research the cultural and historical significance of the dances and the societies from which they originate.
As a result, Muntu is more than just a performing company.
They are also a company of teachers: an essential element to the perpetuation of our art form and its accurate transmittal to our audiences. Immediately following the performance, participants will be given tickets to join us for a “Taste of Soul” in the Kindig Performing Arts Center Lobby.
