Black Movements Dance Theater

In celebration of Black History Month, the Black Movements Dance Theater (BMDT) has created a showcase performance named Exodus. Inspired by recent events including the Charlottesville protests, the repeal of DACA, the Philando Castille verdict, and the Executive Order ban on Muslim peoples, the show highlights the underlying turmoil our country faces today. BMDT explains that “Exodus seeks to explore the emotions of captivity, bondage, suffering, revolution, escape, and journey to the promised land and freedom.” Through this production, the group hopes to provide a memorable and thought-provoking experience for the public, but also stand beside those most affected by the events described above. The presentation features the work of artists such as Dakiya Lambert, Jamie Thompson, Torens Johnson, but also that of Artistic Director Professor Alfreda Davis, and student choreographers.

The performance is set to take place on Friday, Feb. 16 and Saturday, Feb. 17 in Georgetown’s Gonda Theater. Ticket prices range from $8 for students to $10 for general admissions.
