Racine D'or

Racine D'or


Tuesday, July 2, 2013 - 6:00am

Presented by Movement Workshop Group + Four-Time Grammy Nominee Cedric Watson in association with the Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn


Thursday, July 11th Performance @7:30pm - followed by opening night toast and post-performance talkback.

Friday July 12th Performance @ 7:30pm

Drawing from Cajun folktales and the diversity of Louisiana, Racine D'or combines contemporary dance theater with traditional Zydeco music, blending Louisiana Creole French with American folk and blues to create a sound all its own.

Imagine a world where the air is thick and the trees are heavy. The land is soft and the waters of the Mississippi lap the shore with an ever-steady heartbeat. The sun dips low, casting a warm glow through the river reeds. The stars awaken, heralding a magic hour. This is Racine D'or, the story of four friends who encounter the joys of innocence and the temptations of trouble and in doing so discover the destruction of community – and what each of them has to do to restore it.



Thur July 11 + Fri July 12 @ 7:30 PM
Tickets: 5-35
