The King Project

Friday, October 20, 2017

In collaboration, choreographers David Riddick and Marshall Swiney are creating a full evening of multimedia dance theater collage. The performance is in commemoration of the rewriting of Dr. Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream speech, Letter from Birmingham jail, and I’ve Been to the Mountain Top speech. By placing Dr. King’s very important writings in a performance setting, the two choreographers explore not just the meaning of the text, but create a fusion of contemporary movement with sounded oration, blurring the boundaries between the speech and dance performance.
