Take Root presents Kaley Pruitt Dance and U R B A N / T R I B E
Kaley Pruitt Dance: Super is for the kid inside your heart. It is hysterical, ridiculous, and at times even devastating. The piece takes a journey from reality, into a fantasized comic book adventure and back. It looks at the icons of “super hero and sidekick” and the impressions we carry of those roles from childhood to adulthood. The imaginary exploit reminds the characters to confront reality with the optimism of youth and to cherish a true friend. Super depicts how bravery may really be nothing more than having a powerful and convincing imagination. The work features dancer Joshua Reaver alongside Kaley Pruitt, with music selections by Europe, Frank Sinatra, and Ben Harper.
U R B A N / T R I B E : HARD SWALLOW is inspired by the Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D.’s book Women Who Run WIth the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype. The work explores notions of embracing the WIld Woman Archetype, while rebelling against oppressive perspectives, that are commonly seen in society (particularly the male perspective). The work questions what it means to embrace the untamed woman? Through myth, movement, and narrative U R B A N / T R I B E presents questions about the dominance within our social structure and the oppressed female persona.
