Threads Dance Project presents “In the Margins’
November 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
One event on November 17, 2018 at 7:30pm
The Karen L. Charles Threads Dance Project invites you to its fall season performance, In the Margins. This performance features Charles’ exploration of those who often live “in the margins of society” – an examination of implicit bias as experienced by deaf/hard of hearing communities, and women in America.
Threads will premiere a new work, To Hear like Me, which seeks to bridge the gap between the deaf/hard of hearing community and the hearing community; creating an experience with dance that incorporates American Sign Language, music visualization, and silence within the piece. Deaf Dance Artist Canae Weiss and ASL Interpreter Terryann Nash will join the company. Threads will also perform Femthology - a compilation of repertory works examining the experience of being female.
The entire show will challenge the audience to be more aware, empathetic, and inclusive of these two marginalized groups who find themselves living In the Margins.
