Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts presents Step Afrika! – 4/28

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College concludes its 2017-18 Kumble Theater season with the much-anticipated return of Step Afrika!, performing two shows on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 3pm & 8pm. These public performances are part of a three-day Brooklyn residency that also includes weekday educational shows for schoolchildren. Tickets for the public performances are $35 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm).
Day-of-show tickets should be purchased at Kumble Theater on the downtown Brooklyn campus of LIU, located at 1 University Plaza, or by calling the Kumble Theater box office at 718-488-1624.
 
Having been one of the highlights of Brooklyn Center’s 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, the company returns to the borough with a program that combines fresh, new works with favorites from its extensive repertoire. The upcoming Brooklyn residency will include an excerpt from The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence, the company’s new dance-theater work inspired by the visual artist’s groundbreaking “The Migration Series.” Charting the story of African-American migrants moving from the South to the North in the early 20th Century, The Migration enjoyed a successful Off-Broadway run at the New Victory Theater in November 2017, subsequently touring across the United States.
“Brooklyn audiences bring out our absolute best,” said C. Brian Williams, Founder and Executive Director of Step Afrika! “It’s exciting for me to watch the artists transfer the energy and excitement of Brooklyn into their performances. The Company is thrilled to once again be a part of Brooklyn Center’s season and perform in one of the greatest cities in the world. We plan to have a very good time on stage and in Brooklyn!”
