Created by one of the greatest choreographers in modern dance, Games (1951) is a bittersweet tale of a group of rambunctious street kids. Described by The New York Times as “an instant classic,” Donald McKayle’s Games has captivated audiences for over 50 years. This summer the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble will perform an ADF commissioned reconstruction of this classic work. Founded in 1970, the Denver-based ensemble continues its mission of bringing dance and appreciation for the arts to groups and individuals across the nation.
The reconstruction of Games by Donald McKayle has been made possible through support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
