UpRooted Dance Presents: The Ascension Project
October 16, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until October 16, 2021
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 year 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 in small spaces, anxiety, disability, trauma and loss, and finally ends with transcendence.
The performances at MC3 will also include a collaborative guest work created by Keira Hart-Mendoza, Katie Harris Banks, and feature live taiko drumming by Mark H Taiko.
