Event Description

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 60th Anniversary Season with the much-anticipated return of National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica (NDTC) on Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 8pm and on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 3pm. Returning to Brooklyn for the first time since their 50th Anniversary tour in 2012, the company will perform two programs combining evocative new works with favorites from their extensive repertoire. Tickets for Saturday evening are $40-$75 and tickets for Sunday matinee are $36-$45, and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm).

 

Co-founded by Rex Nettleford and Eddy Thomas in 1962, at the time of Jamaica’s Independence, NDTC ventures to provide an atmosphere in which dancers could create and perform works of high standards, to encourage the Jamaican public to better appreciate the art of dance, and to research and utilize indigenous dance-forms and movement pattern from Jamaica and the wider Caribbean.

 

A biennial visitor to Brooklyn Center for more than two decades, NDTC presents two special programs featuring repertoire highlighting the company’s 50 year history. The repertoire for the company’s 2015 Brooklyn appearance includes:

  • Drumscore (1979), choreography by Rex Nettleford, featuring the NDTC singers
  • Diarogue for Three (1963), choreography by Rex Nettleford
  • Playtime (2014), traditional Jamaican folk songs featuring NDTC singers and orchestra
  • Rough Drafts (2014), choreography by Chris Walker, featuring full NDTC company
  • Sulkari (1980), choreography by Eduardo Rivero-Walker, originally premiered on May 13, 1971 by the Danza Nacional de Cuba
  • Incantation (2002), choreography by Jeanguy Saintus, a solo excerpt featuring Kerry-Ann Henry
  • Kumina (1971), choreography by Rex Nettleford
