In The Same Tongue at ASU Gammage

January 27, 2024

Event Summary

In The Same Tonge is a full-length movement, sound and language-based work choreographed and directed by Dianne McIntyre which features poetry by Ntozake Shange, a composition by Olu Dara and original music by Diedre Murray. The work explores dance and music “speaking” to each other: Africans bound together with no common “tongue;” the sound of rage, endearment, suspicion; speech impeding victory; nature reacting to clashes of race; sacred traditions in harmony; silent speech. The company of five dancers and five musicians brings theatrical expression to every move, every note, every word.
