Stono

April 20 — May 8

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, December 8.

With beating drums and shouts of “Liberty!,” the Stono Rebellion spurred the Negro Act prohibiting, among numerous rights, enslaved Africans’ use of drums. But the fight for freedom is never silent. A story of resistance, resilience and reclamation, Stono fills the stage with music and dance to honor the artistry and activism borne out of the body as a percussive instrument. From traditions of the ring shout to contemporary stepping, Step Afrika! reveals the hidden histories and resounding rhythms that transformed America.
