Committed: rebirth of tradition.

The Sankofa Chronicles is a classic tale of a rebellious youth, time travel, a vibrant dancing village, and a joyous lesson learned. This African opera is a full concert production where dancers, singers, and musicians perform a dramatic work using the rich traditions of authentic African dance and drum, as well as a new world African art fusion of movement and music.

The Sankofa Dance Theater creates and presents world-class authentic African art in the form of dance, music, and folkways for national and international audiences. The work of the Company is rooted in the definition of the word Sankofa which means to learn from the past in an effort to build for the future. Sankofa Dance Theater reaches back into the rich legacy of African culture and history to move forward into greater intercultural awareness for the global community.
