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.
