Setting the Stage Performance to Highlight African-American Pioneers in Modern Dance


Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey (KCFAA) celebrates diversity year-round. But, this month, KCFAA is celebrating Black History Month by honoring African American legacies and visionaries in the world of dance with a special presentation of Setting the Stage at the Gem Theater.

Setting the Stage is a unique multi-media program that combines live dance performances with pictures, and narration starting with the Middle Passage. Created, directed and choreographed by KCFAA's Chief Artistic Officer Tyrone Aiken, Setting the Stage is an exciting visual journey through African-American dance history. Setting the Stage is performed by talented local and national artists and provides insights into the history and legacies of African-American pioneers - including Katherine Dunham and Alvin Ailey.
