Deeply Rooted Dance Theater presents its annual season featuring the world premiere of Parallel Lives, choreographed by Gary Abbott with original music by Evangelos Spanos. Parallel Lives is inspired by the bonding resilience of poor working women. Flack, a revival by Kevin Iega Jeff set to music by Roberta Flack, reveals a community’s strife, despair and triumph through the unfailing power of love. Jeff’s Nia Keii—A Gift of Life is a revival to music by Joe Sample. Nia Keii is an interpretation of nature’s elements in fluid movement. Repertory favorites Somewhere, by Abbott to music by Aretha Franklin, and Heaven, by Abbott and Jeff to original music by Janice Pendarvis, Anthony Moten, and Raymond Jones and updated by Sam Trump, complete the program.
