RudduR Dance, led by Jamaican-born dance-maker Christopher Rudd, blends contemporary ballet and modern dance, and ventures off the floor with aerial work. The company presents the world premiere of Witness: Part 1 - Yesterday, the first of a three-part journey portraying the Black experience and the march towards equality, plus a selection of their gravity defying, signature works, including Siren's Realm, Doubt of the Devout, The Place Between and A Night in the Life of Us.


The CUNY Dance Initiative receives major support from The Mertz Gilmore Foundation, the Howard Gilman Foundation, and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Jerome Robbins Foundation, the SHS Foundation, the Fan Fox & Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, and the Harkness Foundation for Dance. CDI is spearheaded and administered by The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College.
