AT THE DINNER TABLE
January 24 premiere
On January 24, engage in At The Dinner Table, a virtual film premiere and dance party from Rejoice! Diaspora Dance Theatre.
“We are done asking for a seat at the table, we are building our own. We acknowledge the ancestors that helped pave the way, the lives lost which sparked movements, and the mess that meets us at the door. Using an Afro-futuristic perspective, we want to know how you will show up, what you will give, and if we will ever sit down together.”
The Zoom event includes:
- Live DJ hosted dance party
- Q&A with Rejoice!’s choreographers & the rest of the production team
- The premiere of the latest film production, filmed at Portland Playhouse.
Please join them as they adapt to this virtual atmosphere, while still speaking up for the social fabric that we continue to find ourselves in.
