Black Dance In Britain 1930s – 1990s Moments is the name of an exhibition and talk taking place at The Drum. The talk will be on 3 Dec, while the exhibition will be showing from 1 December to 30 January.
Here’s the blurb:
Black Dance in Britain depicts important movements in the history of Black Dance in Britain over the last sixty years, the exhibition featuring images of organisations and choreographers who through dance, have engaged in a rich cross-cultural dialogue, sharing styles of movement, experience and innovations. The resulting fusion of dance styles not only began to define dance by performers of African Caribbean, Asian and African descent living in Britain, but it also added a new dimension to British dance.
The exhibition includes images from photographers such as Dee Conway, Chris Nash and Terry Cryer.
It is our pleasure to invite you to the artist talk session of ‘Black Dance in Britain 1930s – 1990s Moments’ on Wednesday 3 December, 7pm @ The Drum. Featuring talks by Fummi Adewole from ADAD and Gail Parmel from ACE, this insighful session will be chaired by Wanijku Nyachae, Dance Officer from Arts Council England, West Midlands.
Black Dance in Britain will be showing at the Drum, Mon 1 Dec 2008 – Fri 30 Jan 2009, admission is free and all are welcome.
