In collaboration, choreographers David Riddick and Marshall Swiney are creating a full evening of multimedia dance theater collage. The performance is in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the writing of Dr. Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream speech for the famous March on Washington in 1963. By placing Dr. King’s very important speech to the performance setting, the two choreographers explore not just the meaning of the text, but create a fusion of contemporary movement with sounded oration, blurring the boundaries between the speech and dance performance.
