THE MIGRATION: REFLECTIONS ON JACOB LAWRENCE

STEP AFRIKA!

The Migration conceptualizes Jacob Lawrence’s groundbreaking “The Migration Series” as an interdisciplinary work with lightning-fast claps, intricate footwork, percussive chants, and perfect synchronicity.  The performance blends body percussion, dance, spoken word, projected images of Lawrence’s paintings and live music to chart the story of African-American migrants moving from the South to the North.
