Join us for the Premier of "For those who are gone but still remain," a new work choreographed by Martha Graham principal dancer Abdiel Jacobsen to music composed and played by Columbus musician Mark Lomax!


Mark Lomax describes the piece as a tribute to those who have transitioned to the Ancestral realm. The three people mentioned specifically are tenor saxophonist Albert Ayler, drummer Sonny Murray, and local tenor saxophonist Charles "Charlie" Cook. The first two left incredible legacies in creative music and Mr. Cook impacted Eddie and Mark directly with his soul, sound, and wisdom.


This event will include the premier of this piece, hors doeuvres, social dancing and a group lesson. Come support Oyo Dance Company as we finish our 3rd season in Columbus!
