“This is a fantastic partnership. I have admired Step Afrika!’s work for years and this is an opportunity to bring their work to Arena audiences,” shares Artistic Director Molly Smith. “Step Afrika! is a distinctive and explosive dance company and a powerful part of Washington’s artistic community. They often tour around the world and Arena is pleased to offer the company a home base. Both organizations will share important resources with each other to create a mutually beneficial relationship, from design to dramaturgy to work online. Arena has had several partnerships over the years, but I’m excited that this relationship with Step Afrika! is for three years since the depth of time will mean a profound relationship between the companies.”
