The theme ‘Til’ Dance Do Us Part’ follows the trajectory of life via the contemporary musical and dance celebrations of people of the Urban African Diaspora. Featuring a diverse group of performers of African heritage, this event is a celebration of how the varied global-African experiences of music, dance, and artistic aesthetics anchor life; from the wondrous and miraculous birth to the tumultuous transition from adolescence to adulthood, the arduous search for partnering to the inevitable mystery of death.

Bacchanal de Afrique- Community lab is an installation of Bacchanal de Afrique- 2016, a multi-day celebration of Afro-Urban Art and Culture featuring master dancers and musicians from the African Diaspora. For other events and more info visit www.afrourban.org
