Fall 2018 Exhibit | Donald McKayle: Dancing for All Time

Dancing for All Time Donald McKayle: Dancing for all Time shines light on the life of Distinguished Professor Donald McKayle; capturing his life as a dancer, choreographer, teacher, and activist. Seminal pieces like Rainbow Round My Shoulder, They Called Her Moses, and District Storyville may be featured, alongside more contemporary and lesser known works like Uprooted and Crossing the Rubicon. Additional themes in the exhibit may include McKayle’s connection to UCI, African Americans in dance, and exploration of how McKayle’s works reflect the civil protest and societal unrest of then and now.

The opening event, held on November 7, 2018, featured an exclusive conversation between Dennis Nahat, THE DONALD McKAYLE LEGACY, Producing Manager and Theatre Ventures International, Founder/President, and Debbie Blunden-Diggs, Artistic Director, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company. The talk was moderated by Jennifer Fisher, Associate Professor of Dance, Claire Trevor School of the Arts, and in consultation with Lea Vivante McKayle, Artistic Director/Executor, THE DONALD McKAYLE LEGACY.
