09jul5:30 pm10:00 pm“Why We Are”: an Uprising Dance Company Showcase

Event Details

At present, our work encompasses the purpose of providing dancers of multicultural backgrounds and disciplines with a platform through which to be fully expressed and wholly represented. The company was established in the face of deepened adversity shown by Racism and Anti-LGBTQIA Sentiments, and each of our members seeks to bring awareness and acknowledgement to social issues in an effort to better our respective communities. Our hope is to provide both this platform and a means of livable compensation for the creation of work by our members and choreographers. This production will be the beginning of introducing the community at large to some of the voices on our company as well as showcasing their collective talent.

Featuring works from:

Grace Bryant, Tony “Techno” Collins, Perlizbeth De Leon, EC Fajardo, and Austin Russell.

With Special Guest Works by Patsy Collins and Brandon Harris!
