Take Root presents Thomas/Ortiz Dance and Indah Walsh Dance Company on May 15th & Mary 16th.

Thomas/Ortiz Dance: Thomas/Ortiz Dance presents two new dances inspired by several aspects of social interactions. The first, set to the music of Kronus Quartet, deals with the vices of human beings and how we deal, coexist, defeat, or surrender to the demons that plague us all. The second is set in the '60s, depicting the similarities and differences of first dates in different cultures.

“Ethereal and rejoicing, intriguing, lighthearted, sexually charged, political, thoughtful – these are adjective that only attempt to describe the eclectic collection of pieces performed... Thomas/Ortiz is a young company which displays much talent and promise.” - Christina Giraldi of Show Business Weekly

Indah Walsh Dance Company: creates vivid, image-driven, and emotionally compelling dance, directed and choreographed by Indah M. Walsh. The company practices a collaborative process where the choreographer, dancers, and other artists generate movement and ideas. Working collaboratively results in each work having an honest and unique movement vocabulary. This new piece explores Indah's background as a global nomad and her thought-provoking trip to Saudi Arabia. By working with women and exploring each artist's spirituality, we aim to create something that is, in itself, a spiritual practice.

"Fresh, funny quality..." - Quinn Batson from Off Off Off
