ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Charles Moore Dance Theatre's concert at Symphony Space theater on Manhattan's Upper West Side in New York City on Saturday, October 18. This eclectic evening was a tribute to the tremendous cultural contributions of the late master drummer and choreographer Babatunde Olatunji. This dance of strength recalls the grace, dignity and beauty of a school of African dance that is less about athleticism and showmanship than the extraordinary tapestry created when movement and music blend as dancers and drummers build rhythm on top of rhythm and movement on top of movement with mesmerizing, smooth, architectural ease.
