About the Work

Creators Megan Doyle, Courtney Laine Self and Stephen Cyr present an adaptation of Pullman Car Hiawatha by Thornton Wilder. This adaptation incorporates contemporary dance and physical theater techniques into the vocabulary and fabric of Wilder's innovative piece. The all-female cast includes Emma Lou DeLaney, Heather Childs, Madeline Shaffer, Nicole Mayes, Rachel Kodweis, Rachel Snyder, Jessica Mosher and Samm Carroll and is presented with permission from the Wilder Estate.

SHIFT Dance Collective’s Head-Space is a movement explorative piece that demonstrates how negative stigmas, misconceptions, and stereotypes surrounding mental illness affect the relationships of those who suffer from it as well as their loved ones. Audio includes musical recordings and original spoken word poetry by Gabriella Bruno.

Take Root is a monthly curated series that supports dance makers by providing an opportunity to show a half evening work paired with another artist.
