Telling stories makes us human--and in "Bodytalk," a rich range of tales are told through dance, music and projected imagery. The program features the award-winning Dayton Contemporary Dance Company (DCDC), whose choreographers were inspired by the works of African-American writers such as Zora Neale Hurston and August Wilson.  A high energy performance, Bodytalk brings audience and artists together with stories that touch on the powerful touchstones of ", migration, love, politics and the church."
