The Ascension Project by UpRooted Dance, set to Sufjan Steven’s Ascension Album, is an indie-rock dance opera offering audiences the chance to reflect on the events of the past two years and the world we now live in through the lens of dance, music, and art. Exploring ’20/20′ vision, The Ascension Project will take audiences through an emotional trajectory through space and time. The work explores isolation, anxiety, disability, identity exploration, trauma and loss, and finally ends with transcendence.

Artistic Director Keira Hart-Mendoza and dancers have created new choreography to reflect both individual and communal experiences. Collaborators Keira Hart-Mendoza and Nitsan Scharf have teamed up to create a projection landscape of design, shape, and color alongside of the dance choreography. The project also brings together local community members as guest artists alongside the UpRooted Dance performers.

Other collaborators include Margie Jervis with costume design and Ben Levine with Lighting Design.
