Event description

Description

Join us for the first Vail Series performance in the new Michael D. Eisner Center for the Performing Arts.

‘When Birds Refused to Fly’ is a contemporary, evening-length dance theatre project, choreographed by Olivier Tarpaga, set to the music of Orchestra Super Volta. Super Volta’s music reflects the celebratory, post-independence fevers raging across sub-Saharan Africa in the 1960’s and 70’s, in stark contrast to the painful struggle African Americans faced during their fight for Civil Rights in the United States. This ensemble piece explores, through music and movement, a generational transformation both cultural and geographic; examining what it is to build up and break down.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Ohio Arts Council and the Crane Group.

The presentation of Baker + Tarpaga Dance Project was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
