Celebrating its 40th year and guided by the pioneering vision of Cleo Parker Robinson, the Denver-based Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble has thrilled audiences worldwide with its explosive body of works inspired by the African-American experience and rooted in Black dance traditions. The 12-member company has performed throughout the nation and in more than 20 countries.
The Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble will perform Rivers of Hope, a program of classic works that includes the deeply evocative Blood Memories by legendary choreographer Donald McKayle. Accompanied by a Harold Roberts suite ranging from African drums to American rock, this inspiring dance focuses on the Nile and Mississippi rivers as centers of community life.
The performance is part of the Art in Motion Series sponsored by the Daron and Ron Barness Family Foundation. It received support from the Arizona Commission on the Arts; WESTAF, the Western States Arts Federation; and the National Endowment for the Arts.
