A spirited spring tradition, DanceAfrica returns for the 36th year with dance, music, art, film, and community events—as well as the beloved DanceAfrica outdoor bazaar, taking place over Memorial Day weekend. BAM’s longest running performance series, DanceAfrica was founded by Chuck Davis in 1977 and is the nation’s largest festival dedicated to African dance. DanceAfrica 2013: Giya Africa/Mandingindira e Africa (which translates to Rhythms of Africa in Ndebele and Shona, the primary languages of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe)—features Umkhathi Theatre Works of Zimbabwe in its New York debut, Atlanta’s all-female group Giwayen Mata, the Bronx’s Harambee Dance Company, and Brooklyn’s BAM/Restoration DanceAfrica Ensemble, performing for the 17th consecutive year.
