Program Notes: 

Taurus Broadhurst won the first Audience Choice Award at the 32nd Annual Choreographers Showcase in January 2015. Because of this win, his company has been granted a NextLOOK residency in the 2015-16 season.

In his choreographic work, Taurus combines the wide-ranging currents of African Diaspora cultures to create a contemporary African aesthetic. His work is grounded in traditional West African dance and fuses movement from modern, house, and hip-hop to convey diverse, contemporary stories that embody the griot tradition through movement.

His new work, with the help of poet Goldie Patrick and the community, will explore connectivity of humanity through Love: Self, Familial and Community.
