The accomplished modern dance company DCDC grounds their work in the African American experience. Choreographer Nathan Trice employs a diverse ensemble to create neo-noir dance theater works.

Founded in 1968 by Dayton, Ohio native Jeraldyne Blunden, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company (DCDC) is the oldest modern dance company in Ohio and one of the largest companies of its kind between Chicago and New York City. Rooted in the African American experience, DCDC's mission is to deliver contemporary dance of the highest quality to the broadest possible audience. DCDC has won national and international acclaim and is renowned for powerful, artistic performances, a diverse repertoire of works by world class choreographers, and excellence in educational programming.

nathantrice/RITUALS dance theater performs a new work loosely inspired by the cross culture movement of "Abstract Expressionism and Film-Noir" to ultimately create a sort of neo-noir dance theater piece that takes a witty, messy, sexy look at courtship.
