Duke Arts Presents 2023-24 Season

IN THE SAME TONGUE is a vibrant full-length movement, sound, and language based-work, dance legend and choreographer Dianne McIntyre unites a vigorous company of dancers and musicians to explore how dance and music "speak" to each other. With original music by celebrated composer Diedre Murray, it reveals how language creates worlds of beauty, alienation, harmony, tension, or peace. Dynamic vignettes ignite the stage, including McIntyre's autobiographical stories with "the music"-such as the musical influence of the Black Arts Movement-and feature the poetry of Obie-winning playwright Ntozake Shange.
