Gronroos’ Mother Mother uses the body to rewrite a version of a personal story, revealing truths that transcend familial, cultural, and societal definitions by re-imagining self and building new mythologies. Mother Mother is performed by Gronroos and former Dance Center student J’Sun Howard.
Morris, performing under the stage name Moonbones, presents Quantum Negress Tantras, which “messes with the epigenetics of internalized oppression for a Black female whose grandmother’s mom was a child of people who were brutalized, tortured, brainwashed, and exploited within the genocidal United States and alchemises spells for her own and all our Black a$$ liberation.”
Santistevan’s Elevator to Stairs is a multidisciplinary solo, pairing contemporary and improvisational dance performance by Santistevan and animation projections by Zachary Lindemann. Inspired by Freudian psychoanalytic theory, Santistevan narrows in on her reoccurring dreams that act as an appendix to her subconscious mind, while simultaneously unveiling the reality of her waking world.
