This season, Freedom Hall’s Nathan Manilow Theatre paints the south suburbs with the energetic horns of a New Orleans brass band and an intoxicating blend of ancient and contemporary African dance. Led by the tuba of Bennie “Big Bennie” Pete, the Hot 8 Brass Band deals in down-home Delta sounds blared from Terrell “Burger” Batiste’s trumpet, Edward “Juicy” Jackson’s trombone, and a trio of backup-singing oyster po boys. All natives of New Orleans, the band’s members cultivated calluses and cred by hitting the streets for Second Line parades and at the city’s Jazz & Heritage Festival. Their post-Katrina efforts to aid displaced communities caught national attention in Spike Lee’s documentary When the Levees Broke.

Now in its 40th year, the Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago blends dance, music, and African folklore into performances Time Out Chicago has hailed as “mesmerizing stuff.” Artistic director P. Amaniyea Payne gathered her deep command of African dance traditions through work with the National Dance Company of Senegal and other troupes. Her expertise translates into pieces where sunny, traditional costumes flutter like Mothra’s artistic cousins as athletic dancers leap across the stage to thunderous drumming and clapping. Performances often compel audiences to take to the aisles themselves with irresistible rhythmic energy and highly convincing shouts of “Fire!”
