Dapline! is a dance piece created in collaboration between choreographer André M. Zachery and visual artist.
The piece looks at the origins and continued practice of “the DAP” or dapping; the intricate handshakes developed by Black combat troops during the Vietnam War. Listed by the New York Times as “Best Dance of 2015,” Dapline! is an invitation to witness the subtle and unspoken conversations between Black men in the United States.
This program will present an excerpt of the evening-length work, followed by a Q&A with performers.
