DIANNE McINTYRE Group: In the Same Tongue

October 5, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


“In modern dance, the names of its persevering practitioners are like cherished objects. Dianne McIntyre is one such . . . one of dance’s most important African-American artists.”—Time Out NY

A pioneering dance innovator, noted for decades of collaborations with leading forces in avant-garde jazz, Dianne McIntyre returns to the Walker with the world premiere of a major new work featuring an evening-length score by celebrated composer Diedre Murray and poems by Obie-winning playwright Ntozake Shange. This elegant and captivating work employs a live jazz ensemble and a vigorous company of dancers to explore the deep rivers of communication in Black American history and culture.
