A Black History Month Celebration of Dance, Music and Culture
Barbea Williams Performing Company presents in three acts an exhilarating
flow of spiritual, powerful and seductive samples of acculturating through
belief systems, resistance and identity. “Dancin’” pursues the ancestral
vitality of the Egungun transcending oceans of emotion, love and fear through
the presence of the all-protective summoning by the Pantheon of Orishas.
University of Arizona – School of Dance’s premier African Centered
Performing Group - UA Afrikana Dance Ensemble and Barbea Williams
Performing Company, both under the direction of Barbea Williams present
highly acclaimed “Women, Art and Geometry” and Early Wonders” both
premiered with the UA School of Dance in their annual Spring Collection 2007
and 2011 respectively. Joining us for this notable feat are the phenomenal
members of Flight School Acrobats in the Quilombos of Brazil with the
subsistence of fishing in “Puxada de Rede”, intertwining the Ngolo-zebra
dance of Angola while working the land in their free societies with the precision
of Capoeira and the thunder’s trawl of Maculele; complete with a traditional
flavor of carnival with Samba in the market dwellings, Acroyoga will be
integrated throughout the entire piece. Captivating us with Argentine Tango
are Milongueros Melissa Alejandra and Rusty Cline; Salson’ style defining and
alluring rhythms under the direction Gerardo Armendariz brings us a Mambo
trio of intrigue; Headlining the Finale’ with a Conga/Comparsa Line for the
audience who can no longer maintain the discipline of sitting, directly from
Spain via Cuba is Cabaret Dancer Leonel Sanchez along with Tucson’s own
Regla Albarran-Miller. What more can we ask for......... .Africa, Argentina, Brazil,
Caribbean, Cuba and Mesoamerica sounds satisfactory.
