Dance Nation

by Clare Barron
Directed by Margot Bordelon

October 22 – November 17, 2019

In this raucously funny 2019 Pulitzer Prize finalist, a competitive dance troupe of pre-teen girls – played by women of all ages – vie for the national trophy. Every plié and jeté hurdles them towards self-discovery. You’ll be moved to tears and laughter as you watch them learn about their bodies and desires, and witness their burgeoning strength through the lens of the women they’ll become.

“Clare’s storytelling is unexpectedly hilarious, tender, ferocious and insightful about the wonderful and terrible complexity of girlhood.” -Artistic Director Blanka Zizka
