About RDT’s VOYAGE
American Modern Dance is a rich tapestry of music and movement which has been influenced by cultures worldwide. VOYAGE is a narrated performance that will help audiences understand how dance has been part of community life as a form of communication, empowerment and entertainment for centuries. Rhythms and patterns gathered from African, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Latin America and the U.S.A. will connect the past with the present to illustrate how dance can document history and culture and tell our collective story.
