Step Afrika! -- Reflections on Jacob Lawrence
Harnessing the success of a sold-out off-Broadway run in New York City, Step Afrika! triumphantly returns to Boston with The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence at Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre. 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. "Fusing gospel music with tap, stepping and gorgeous gumboot dancing -- this is movement as communal celebration," praised The New York Times, while Huffington Post declared, "This immigration story is an important part of American history, beautifully rendered via art and dance."
