An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until April 22, 2023

$53 – $65

The acclaimed Step Afrika! is the world’s first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping — a polyrhythmic, percussive dance form that uses the body as an instrument. The company presents its latest work, Drumfolk, a powerful piece inspired by the Stono Rebellion of 1739. Step Afrika! blends songs, storytelling and dance to explore a little-known event in American history that led to some of our country’s most distinct performance traditions. New percussive forms took root when the beats found their way into the body of the people, the Drumfolk, in a way that would forever transform African American life and culture. Co-commissioned by Meany Center.

In the bodies of these skilled performers, the beat is obviously unstoppable.
