About This Show

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. Reviving the spirit of McIntyre’s internationally celebrated company Sounds in Motion, In the Same Tongue explores a legacy like that of 1920s Harlem salons, and the Black Arts Movement of the 60’s & 70’s, with dynamic dancers, writers, and musicians. With original music by celebrated composer Diedre Murray, In the Same Tongue 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.
