10 Jul “RE: UNTANGLE”
Movement brings us back to ourselves. “Untangle” was inspired by Dance Therapy work in an inpatient treatment center. The theme of moving from isolation to connection emerged, first in the therapeutic process working with groups, and then in the creative process working with dancers.
When our April performance was cancelled due to Covid, we were forced to grapple with feelings of our own isolation, and reinvent how to connect with others.
After quarantine stillness came the movement. Flames of social justice, realizing just how connected we really are: when one of us can’t breathe, none of us can.
“RE: Untangle” explores the connections between all of this. We have joined with creative voices from Black Lives Matter, Ogden to bring the community an evening of performance art.
