Arena Stage is offering us discounted tickets for groups of 10 for the Wednesday, July 10th performance of Step Afrika!'s The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence.  The program will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Kreeger Theater, located within the Arena Stage building at 1101 6th Street, SW. Running time is 90 minutes including a 15-minute intermission.

Using its hallmark style of percussive dance-theater, Step Afrika!’sThe Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence tells the story of one of the largest movements of people in United States history, when millions of African American migrants moved from the rural South to the industrial North in the 1900s to escape Jim Crow, racial oppression, and lynchings. Inspired by Jacob Lawrence’s iconic 60-panel “The Migration Series” (1940-41), this signature work from the award-winning dance company uses the images, color palette, and motifs in the painting series to tell this astonishing story through pulsating rhythms and visually stunning movement.
