Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble presents “Rhapsody in Black” Stories of African-American Artistic Visionaries in Paris Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble (CPRDE) launches its 48th Anniversary Season with "Rhapsody in Black,” the world premiere of this title piece created by Cleo Parker Robinson in collaboration with Winifred Harris, CPRDE Associate Artistic Director. This Fall Concert also features the iconic repertory work “Ellingtonia,” in only three performances September 28 to 30 in the Gates Hall at the Newman Center on the University of Denver Campus, 2344 East Iliff Ave at University and Iliff. Rhapsody In Black enables the audience to experience the cultural dynamics of Black Americans in Paris – from Josephine Baker to James Baldwin, Duke Ellington to Nina Simone. The performance by the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble includes live music, vocals, and spoken word. “Ellingtonia” was created by American dance legend, Talley Beatty, honoring Duke Ellington who spent considerable time in Paris both composing and performing. Created in 1994 for the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, “Ellingtonia” was Beatty’s tribute to the jazz composer he considered the greatest of all time. A year after setting the work, Beatty passed away in NYC at the age of 76. Recognizing that as early as the 19th century, and particularly during what is referred to as the Harlem Renaissance, Paris was viewed as a beacon of freedom and tolerance for African Americans, Cleo Parker Robinson and CPRDE Associate Artistic Director, Winifred R. Harris, will also premiere a new collaborative work which delves into the intricate and passionate lives of African-American artists, musicians, dancers and poets who found a home for their creative vision in Paris. Dr. Michael A. Williams will serve as musical director for this new work, with Denver vocalist Linda Theus-Lee lending her extraordinary vocals to the project. Actor Charles Reece will portray James Baldwin and Langston Hughes.
