Take Root presents Aaron McGlorin Dance and Katy Orthwein Dance Projects

Aaron McGlorin Dance: THE HARD WAY is an autobiography told through solo dances created over the past 10 years. Utilizing solos (made in response to pivotal moments in life) as the raw materials for a collage, this piece is a highly-physical recounting of a personal history. From life as an ugly duckling, to finding and defining new homes, failed attempts at love, and building a strong sense of self, the realization emerges that the only way to truly learn the lessons that life has to teach is the hard way.

Katy Orthwein Dance Projects:Katy Orthwein Dance Projects creates art that engages and enfolds the audience in a distinct world through the cumulative efforts of artistic collaborations. This premiere is the first phase of an ongoing project. From gestural specificity, nuance and delicacy to full, dynamic movement, a unique vocabulary reflects form that crystallizes and dissolves, as individuals are drawn together or repelled apart within their shared world. Exploring how time can seemingly suspend then cascade, the dancers vacillate between steadiness and abandon, seeking and assessing, as they test the waters, each other and themselves.
