Martha Graham Dance Company and Ladysmith Black Mambazo will perform in February at WKU’s Van Meter Hall as part of the 2015-2016 Cultural Enhancement Series.
The first event of the spring semester features Martha Graham Dance Company at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 3. No tickets are required for this free event, but seats will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Since 1928, the Martha Graham Dance Company has worked to embody a vision of contemporary dance that creates historical and thematic narratives through the movement of their bodies and the emotions they pour onto the stage. This performance will highlight issues of fascism facing the world, commemorate the tragedy that occurred on 9/11, and present several other emotional and riveting pieces.
At 7:30 p.m. Feb. 10, the 2015-2016 Cultural Enhancement Series concludes with a performance from Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Admission is free and no tickets are required, but seats will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Founded by Joseph Shabalala in South Africa, the group has spent more than 50 years celebrating life through music. In the time since the group’s inception, they have received three Grammy Awards and 15 Grammy nominations. Additionally, the group has spent time in the recording studio with artists such as Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban, Dolly Parton and others.
Both performances are swipeable for WKU students.
