Lyric Fire: Dunbar In Motion


This school day matinee is now open to the public! Featuring the exquisite choreography of Cleveland native Dianne McIntyre, LYRIC FIRE: DUNBAR IN MOTION puts into physical motion the poetry of Dayton’s own Paul Laurence Dunbar, the first African-American poet to achieve international fame. Performed by Dayton Contemporary Dance Company (DCDC) in period costume, the dance paints a moving and vibrant picture of the poet’s life during the late 1800s. The dancers bring to life the poet himself, his creative muse and his most loved poems, including the thought provoking “We Wear the Mask,” and other favorites like “When Malindy Sings.” LYRIC FIRE: DUNBAR IN MOTION is an exquisite celebration of artistic African-American accomplishment through dance and movement. Based on the poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar.
