You know the feeling: it starts with a nod, then a smile, and pretty soon you feel it to the ends of your fingers. That’s the joy that comes from the celebration of the human spirit in motion.
Nationally recognized Muntu Dance Theatre has been bringing that joy to audiences in Chicago since 1972. Known for high-energy dancing and drumming, Muntu presents dances that honor African and African-American traditions.
The Chicago Humanities Festival is pleased to present Muntu in several works from its extensive repertoire, including Eveningtime, a playful gem from Muntu‘s past, and Mujuboo Rock, a synthesis of authentic West African dance with the contemporary, conceived by artistic director Amaniyea Payne.
You might just find yourself dancing—and laughing—in the aisles.
Nearby street parking is available. Campus parking lots are free for visitors on weekends. Parking is also available at 5500 S Ellis Ave.
This event is part of the Chicago Humanities Festival’s (CHF) annual fall festival. For more information, please visit the CHF’s website.
