The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence
Step Afrika! brings its incredible 2017-2018 season to a close with nine performances of The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence in Washington, DC at the Hartke Theatre, June 8-17, 2018.
A beat for every brushstroke, Step Afrika! brings to life Jacob Lawrences The Migration Series, the landmark collection of paintings about one of the largest demographic transformations in U.S. history. Fusing body percussion, stepping, and contemporary dance with live gospel, jazz and blues music, Step Afrika! tells the uniquely American story of African Americans who moved from the rural south to the urban north in the 1900s.
