Press Write-up:

African Roads, American Streets

Universal Dance Destiny’s family-friendly fare is a celebration of multiculturalism, hip-hop, and African dance. The virtuosic performers drum, beatbox, pop-and-lock, break dance, and use spoken word to tell the somewhat autobiographical story of a Liberian princess’s journey from Africa to America. Company founder, producer, and choreographer Edna Stevens came to the United States via Liberia in 1981 and moved here in 2002. As an artist relatively new to the Cities, the chance to perform at the Guthrie is the “ultimate” opportunity. “I have no words to describe my excitement,” she says, “which is why we’re going to spice up the show a bit.”

“This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.”
