A mixed-bill evening of dance ranging from classical to contemporary dance, Fall Forward features performances from The Ngoma School Students. DDT presents three world premieres Rise, The Winds of Time, and The Happy Hour. Rise explores three men and the range of emotion they experience in the midst of uncertainty, fear, pain, and hope - like dust...They rise. The Winds of Time (Choreographed by UMD's Alvin Mayes) honors and gives a home-going to soul-singer, Aretha Franklin. The Happy Hour is a tutu ballet that sheds light on the life’s jovial moments of self-expression, play, and friend interaction.
