GOSHEN, The Story of the Exodus, brings together GRAMMY Award-winning producer, songwriter, and gospel artist Donald Lawrence and members of The Tri-City Singers, rapper Sir The Baptist, poet J. Ivy and choir master Zeke Locke with Chicago's Deeply Rooted Dance Theater for a collaboration of gospel music, song, dramatic narrative, and dance-theater rooted in African-American traditions. The work addresses contemporary matters of race and equity while exploring historic themes of power, wealth, fear, and oppression depicted in ancient biblical narrative. Performers include 11 Deeply Rooted dancers, 8 principal singers, and 11 choral singers. The score includes music from Lawrence's GRAMMY-nominated album Goshen, released on RCA Inspiration, a division of Sony, along with new music for this production.
