Take Root presents Regina Nejman & Company and Chris Ferris & Dancers
Regina Nejman & Company: Beautiful Figure is a new multi-media dance choreographed by Regina Nejman where two dancers explore various ideas of "beauty" raging from the late Renaissance period until contemporary times when beauty is merely defined by our culture as "hot" and often distorted, exploiting and objectifying women.
Chris Ferris & Dancers: Rampaging Light by Chris Ferris & Dancers, is dance existing in parallel worlds; framed time shattered between reality and dreams; and the magical mishaps that you thought didn't happen but did. You are held and released by the silent step, soundless wind, screaming train, and buzzing wall of voices. This is a performance that will alter your perception of a single room and the flipping numbers on your clock. Sometimes everything does not have to make sense.
