Brévo Theatre Presents "TM Pride’s: Emancipation Blues" – A Ballet Celebrating African American History & Blues Music
Brévo Theatre, known for its innovative and culturally significant productions, is excited to present the debut of TM Pride’s: Emancipation Blues at the Pompano Beach Library & Cultural Center on Sunday, February 11 at 3 p.m. This unique ballet was written, directed, and choreographed by Brévo Theatre co-founder, Terrence “TM” Pride. Ticket prices are $25.00 for general admission.
Hosted at the Pompano Beach Library & Cultural Center and sponsored by the Broward Cultural Division, Emancipation Blues is a captivating blend of artistic expression and historical narrative. The ballet pays tribute to the profound impact of blues music and the African American journey toward freedom. It is an engaging and educational experience designed to resonate with audiences from all backgrounds.
The ballet showcases a diverse array of dance styles, including West African, modern, jazz, tap, and hip-hop. These dynamic movements are perfectly synchronized with poetic narration, capturing key historical moments in a way that is both moving and inspiring. The performance is set against a backdrop of iconic jazz melodies, featuring works of legends such as Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald. It elegantly narrates the African American pursuit of liberty and justice, spanning from the Civil Rights era to the modern-day Black Lives Matter movement.
“Emancipation Blues is more than just a ballet; it's a vibrant storytelling canvas that brings to life the soul and rhythm of African American history through dance. This performance is our way of honoring the resilience, courage, and cultural richness of the African American community, especially poignant during Black History Month. We at Brévo are excited to present a show that not only entertains but educates and inspires, echoing the enduring spirit of a journey toward freedom and equality,” says Pride.
Brévo Theatre invites audiences to join this remarkable journey through African American history, witnessed through the universal language of dance and music.
