The power of dance as a means of healing and survival is explored in “Crossing Rivers: The Love of Afrekete,” an original choreographed dance by Kara Mahon. The Africana studies major will present her senior honors performance project using students involved in the Oberlin Essence Dance troupe, led by Adenike Sharpley, artist in residence in the Africana studies, theater, and dance departments. The Essence Dance troupe celebrates the spirituality, philosophy, and diversity of African culture. “Crossing Rivers” has its debut in Warner Center Main Space.
