Opening its 11th season at California State University, Sacramento, Sacramento/Black Art of Dance presents Quilts: Diasporic Tapestries, at 8 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays, 7 p.m. Sundays, Oct. 21 to 24 and 27 to 31 in Solano Hall 1010.

The performance, developed by S/BAD associate director and longstanding company member Nathan Jones, brings together choreography by Jones and other S/BAD members including Nicole Manker, Noah Hayes, Nzinga Woods and Eric Vianelle. The show explores different aspects of African-inspired movement, piecing together personal narratives that represent principles of unity, faith and self-determination.

S/BAD was founded in 1993 by Sacramento State professor Linda Goodrich as a concert dance company that employs the aesthetic traditions established by modern dance pioneer Katherine Dunham. The dance company celebrates the movement and music of African culture.

Tickets are $15 general admission, $13 for students and seniors, $12 for Sacramento State students and $9 for children 12 or younger.
