Vincent Mantsoe is known for his singular and virtuosic movement vocabulary that fuses South African traditional and ritual dance with contemporary street dance forms from around the world. He will present a new work exploring the journey and spirit of South Africas Khoi-San people as they have been forced to retreat from open land. This Paris-based company of five dancers, with a soundscape of poetry by Rumi and Iranian music played on traditional Persian instruments, will present a mesmerizing work that is at once trance-like, visceral and uplifting. Made possible by a grant from the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts. Co-sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Institutional Partnerships. The Breaking Ground Dance Series is presented by the Dance Department and the Center for the Arts, and is made possible by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism.
