earlier performances

june 28 / april sellers dance collective

Man Blossom Man a new performance work by the April Sellers Dance Collective explores a masculinity crisis in America.  It validates contradictions in the American male experience, depicts complexity in the male identity and softens barriers of the traditional gender binary. Gender-bending and political sloganeering will partner with stylistically distinct movement to reveal the negatives inherent in patriarchy and how nurturing can disrupt the patterns.

In A Girl Called Sidney: The Coldest Place, Courtney Yasmineh takes us on the journey of a lifetime.
