DNA: Destiny’s Closest Ally 1999

Choreographer Sheron Wray created a performance called DNA: Destiny’s Natural Ally for Black History Month 1999; performed by dancer Louise Katerega.

A dancer and a length of rope intertwine to the delicate classical Kora music of young star of the British African classical music scene, Tunde Jugede. Originally commissioned to accompany a museum exhibition of Afrikan artifacts, the dance celebrates the scientific achievements of ancient Afrika and the power of the Afrikan Woman. The work has subsequently been invited for performances at a musuem’s conference, dance platforms and British Black dance events where it has received an enthusiastic response from these varied audiences.
