Riddick Dance & Upcoming Events at Piedmont Arts

Riddick Dance
Thursday, March 16 • Reception at 6:30 pm • Performance at 7 pm
Riddick Dance is a contemporary African American dance company featuring a broad repertory, expressive movement and a fusion of dance styles.

Riddick will perform three pieces: Limerick of Our Souls, a dance-theater assortment including love stories, poems, and speeches; ONE, a mixed media piece dealing with love, loss, forgiveness, and conflict resolution through the enlightening, meditative music of Alice Coltrane; and The King Project, improvisational dance theater laced in visual projections based on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speeches, "I Have a Dream" and "I’ve Been to the Mountain Top," and his "Letter from Birmingham Jail."
