Take Root presents Smashworks Dance Collective and Roots in Revolution
 
Smashworks Dance Collective: Smashworks Dance Collective presents an athletic, prop-oriented work exploring gender inequality and the societal pressure for women to find wholeness primarily through marriage. As three performers engage in the possibility of a new fulfillment, they abandon their independence in a powerful presentation of obsession and vulnerability. Through the use of inventive movement vocabulary on folding chairs, Smashworks aims to shed light on the female struggle for equality and independence, defying antiquated expectations of success.
 
Roots in Revolution: Led by Darnetha Lincoln M'Baye, presents a program of dances that look at facets of our spiritual and emotional growth from multiple angles. We'll delve into the ways we identify and unearth hidden parts of ourselves; and the ways we tap into our roots and tie them into who we are now. We'll reflect on how we sabotage our own happiness; and how we can accept and release our inner joy. And finally, we'll take time to honor our connections to one another - the relationships we've left and those we've loved.
