Deeply Rooted Dance Theater’s Artistic Director, Kevin Iega Jeff and guest panelists will engage in a rich conversation about DRDT’s 2013 MacArthur Foundation International Connections Fund collaboration with Durban, South Africa’s Flatfoot Dance Company. This exchange brought Flatfoot Dance Company to Chicago in 2014 where company members trained and collaborated on the creation of a new work titled Encounters, and offered forums throughout Chicago about the 20th Anniversary of the end of apartheid. Join us as audiences and artists dive into a moderated conversation exploring highlights from this unique cultural exchange and how their experiences from this exchange blossomed into a three year relationship.
