WI (January 19, 2017) - Ko-Thi Dance Company will debut VIBRATIONS: Rhythmic
Motion in Wilson Theater at Vogel Hall on February 2-3, 2017. Ko-Thi's
much anticipated return to the stage in Milwaukee will feature Ko-Thi's Adult
Company and Ton Ko-Thi Children's Performing Ensemble, a post-performance
talk back with the Company and mini archival exhibit. Founded by Ferne
Yangyeitie Caulker in 1969, Ko-Thi Dance Company celebrates its 5th
generation of Ko-Thi Dance Company.
Rhythmic Motion is a dynamic representation in dance, drumming, and theater
reflecting traditional African and Contemporary performance art. Using
specific dance and musical genres, this concert blends a visual and audible
palette into a refreshingly seamless offering that insights rhythmic pulses
and body movement into a wild, hypnotic new look at African culture.
This concert features collaborative works and staging by DeMar Walker, Sonya
Thompson, Ferne Caulker, Kumasi Allen, and Youssouf Koumbassa. "To
connect and move African dance and music from obscurity to the light, to
expose children and all audiences to the beauty and significance of the
African aesthetic to the world has been my life path" says Founder and
Artistic Director Ferne Caulker
