Coming this February to the Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanti: “Beau Monde: an Anthology in Black Movement” featuring Artistic Director Gina Danene Thompson and PURe Dance Ensemble. Beau Monde boasts more than 40 international, national, and local performers in over ten acts in various styles of dance including modern, tap, ballet, Dunham, and Congolese.

“During last year’s Oscars, Meryl Streep said to ‘take your broken heart and make art,’ and this has been my battle cry for Beau Monde,” says Thompson. “The show is designed to bring joy and a pocket of escape from our new reality. My personal goal is to give healing experiences in large group form through art, theater, and dance.”

PURe Dance Ensemble is a combination of different ethnicities, ages, body types, and dance forms, and the purpose of the show is to draw everyone together in music and movement through American History. It’s no coincidence that Beau Monde will be taking place during Black History Month. Expect to see pieces about and inspired by Africa, slavery, the Harlem Renaissance, disco, and hip-hop culture.

Beau Monde had a successful premiere run last September, and another short run in May, both at Bona Sera’s dinner theater. PURe Dance Ensemble and the other performers are excited about the increased space -- on stage and in the audience -- that will be available at Ypsilanti’s Riverside Arts Center’s theater.

The show has evening performances on February 1, 2, and 3 at 8pm, with limited tickets available to matinee performances.
