Arts & Issues and SIUE Xfest present:



Deeply Rooted Dance Theater

Friday, September 14, 2018, 7:30 p.m.
Dunham Hall Theater

Chicago’s Deeply Rooted Dance Theater (DRDT) is rooted in traditions of American and African-American dance, storytelling and universal themes that spark a visceral experience and ignite an emotional response in diverse audiences worldwide. DRDT collaborates with nationally renowned choreographers across the spectrum of modern, ballet and African dance to reflect contemporary voices.

“[Deeply Rooted is] the city’s answer to the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, yet with a profile very much its own… spiritual fervor, physical prowess, and sheer, unalloyed joy in movement.”

Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
