WHM Exit Dance Theatre – Catching Breath

March 14 @ 5:00 pm

The “Women’s HERstory Month” committee is so excited to have assembled another incredible month of inspiring stories and performances to celebrate Women’s History Month. For the 2021 WHM theme, we decided “Iron Butterflies” would be the inspiration for all shows. This was the symbol used by the Suffragists to show determination and strength. We realized it lent itself as a perfect metaphor to exemplify what we have all experienced in the year 2020. The quarantining, similar to the cocoon; then reinvention and regrowth, such as the transformation of the chrysalis to caterpillar; to vaccination and ultimate survival – the triumphant butterfly!

 

 

Exit Dance Theatre, founded in 1987 and based at The Dance Place in Newburyport, works collaboratively and often develops work through improvisational exploration. This show features choreography from filmed projects created during the COVID-19 shutdown as is evident by the masks and distancing. Some past work is featured as well. These expressive works reflect the close creative bond the company has developed over the years.

 

 

Exit Dance Theatre performers are:

Susan Atwood, Fontaine Dollas Dubus, Darlene Doyle, Nicole Duquette, Julie Pike Edmond, Sarah George, Karl Granoth,
Stephen Haley, Wendy Hamel, Patricia Piacentini, Teddy Speck, Erin Staffiere, Jen Steeves, Yori Thomas, Kayla Waldron

When:
