The Gallo Center is delighted to present Lula Washington Dance Theatre Company. This award-winning Los Angeles-based repertoire dance ensemble performs innovative and provocative choreography by Lula Washington. The company tours internationally and has been received with acclaim and admiration by steadfastly focusing on using dance to explore social and humanitarian issues, including aspects of African-American history and culture.
The company will present "The Little Rock Nine
," a hard-hitting work that tells the story of nine African American students who risked their lives by enrolling in a all-white, segregated school, and whose courage changed America. (Lula herself was born near Little Rock, Arkansas in 1950.)
