WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Theater for the New City will present its 43rd annual Thunderbird American Dancers Dance Concert and Pow Wow from February 2 to 11, 2018, featuring dances, stories and traditional music from Native Peoples of the Northeast, Southwest, and Great Plains regions. The event has become a treasured New York tradition for celebrating diversity by honoring the culture of our first Americans. The dozen-or-so dancers range from nine-year-old Isabel Cespedes (Mayan) to retiree-age.
Troupe director and emcee Louis Mofsie (Hopi and Winnebago), also an educator, will introduce and explain all elements of the performance. Mofsie plays an important part in the show by his ability to present a comprehensive view of native culture. Native American crafts, jewelry will be sold in the TNC lobby.
