The Long Wait

Choreography by Derion Loman and Madison Olandt

 

DBDT: Encore! Rising Excellence has always been a catalyst for young talent. In a first for Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s organization, dance/choreographic duo Derion Loman and Madison Olandt jointly created The Long Wait, a drama of cosmic proportions for DBDT: Encore! This relevant and revealing world premiere is an introspection of the human spirit refusing to give up even when it can’t see the finish line.

Diaspora

Choreography by Nycole Ray and Richard A. Freeman, Jr.

 

It’s a match made in artistic bliss. Diaspora synthesizes DBDT: Encore! with the volunteer musicians of the New Texas Symphony Orchestra. The Encore! company performs to NTSO live in a new work choreographed by Nycole Ray and Richard A. Freeman, Jr. The new work is based on a song named “Diaspora” by composer Conni Ellisor. The music is constructed on West African percussion, cultivating complex, contrasting rhythmic patterns.
