Celebrate Kwanzaa with this dazzling dance company that The Washington Post calls "nothing short of spectacular!" Led by artistic director and choreographer Abdel R. Salaam, Forces of Nature utilizes a unique blend of modern dance, traditional West African movement, ballet, hip-hop, and martial arts, all set to both live and recorded music. Visceral and visually inventive, these multi-ethnic dancers and drummers perform one-of-a-kind programs that are "spectacular (and) daringly theatrical," says The New York Times. Forces of Nature has wowed audiences at the Joyce Theater, BAM: Brooklyn Academy of Music, Aaron Davis Hall and the Apollo Theater, and was featured on PBS in Free to Dance, a Great Performances special on the history of black dance in the 20th century.
