Sacred Slave Stories

Performance Details
Description

Funded by United Arts of Central Florida and the National Endowment for the Arts, Moore Dance Project presents a series of modern dance vignettes inspired by historic interviews with the nation’s last generation of African-American slaves. Moving between sorrow and joy, the work unfolds as a series of living memories that reveal personal accounts of a people’s collective courage, sacrifice and resilience. Includes live readings by local artists and celebrities, including radio host Monica May; post-show dialogue with Artistic Director Dario J. Moore.

Special presentations will reach more than 1,800 young students from Title I public schools (learn more). Additionally, a limited number of free in-school assembly performances and related workshops are available on a first-come, first-served basis for Orange County Public Schools (grades 5-12).  To request a complimentary performance or workshop for an Orange County Public School, please email info@thecenterfordance.org.
