An Evening of Cultural Convergence

Performance at the Ailey Citigroup Theater
405 W. 55th Street, New York, NY 10019.
April 9, 2020 at 7:30 p.m.

An Evening of Cultural Convergence, presents works by award-winning Cuban dance-maker Pedro Ruiz, leading Argentinian tango dancer and choreographer, Dardo Galletto, and the multi-talented choreographer Lucia Jackson. The evening also will include a premiere addressing current socio-political issues. Focused on the erosion, global and domestic, of democratic and constitutional values, the work sheds light on the injustices faced by so many, including children, to whom Accent Dance NYC remains committed. Additional works from the ensemble weave a common thread throughout the program reflecting how cultures intersect, and how diversity, above all, is what brings vitality and spirit to our society
