The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center has partnered with Constella Festival of Music and Fine Arts for a Cincinnati Evening at The Banks. The evening includes the exhibition opening reception for Mandela: The Journey To Ubuntu and Luminous Dance on Friday, March 24, 2017.

Constella Festival of Music and Fine Arts, in conjunction with the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company and MamLuft&Co., presents two new world-premiere contemporary dance performances at Luminous Dance.

One of the performances, inspired by John Coltrane's masterpiece "Spiritual,"  engages historic African American folklore, with themes of ritual, loss, joy and power. Intermedia in nature, the dancers embark on a contemporary migration of the spirit through time as paced by Coltrane's wonderfully complex composition.

The evening also features the visual art of Saad Ghosn, a Cincinnati native and well-known local artist who frequently utilizes the theme of social justice in his work.

The evening will culminate with an after-party at Taste of Belgium at The Banks.
