Experience Native American culture through authentic dance, music and ceremony when the Lakota Sioux Dance Theatre performs Ċokata Upō! Ċokata Upō! – Come to the Center is the story of the birth, death and rebirth of a nation. The performance represents an experience the New York Times describes as a “…great sense of theatricality…a visual treat…more than a spectacle…A ritual celebration that made dancing a ceremonial act.” This three-part work celebrates the culture of the Lakota people. Set against a backdrop of spectacular video imagery and accompanied by live traditional, sacred, and courting songs, narratives and creation stories are woven into the fabric of the performance. Under the direction of choreographer Henry Smith, the company includes some of the most highly acclaimed championship performers of the Sioux Nation.
