The Ensemble inspires change through innovative, movement-based, multi-arts performance on stage that examines social and personal issues of our time.
Doors not Walls. Leaving, Arriving, Rediscovering (us).
(US) is a timely and provocative exploration of the tensions and world views in public dialog about our country’s foundational tenets of inclusiveness, diversity, and free speech. Through dance, visual imagery and a layered sound score, (US) examines closed versus open spaces, uniformity versus individualism, and oppression versus sanctuary. (US) probes, questions and ultimately affirms what it is and can be to live in America and what freedom truly means.
(US) will premiere on Friday October 12, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. There will be additional performances at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday, October 13 at 6:00 p.m.
