Mélange Dance Company presents HerStory
March 8-10 at 8 pm and March 11 at 3 pm
The movement continues. Our timely, exciting, and original production returns as the fight for gender equity gains strength. Join us as we reflect on the progress initiated by women who dared to persist, journeying through the three waves of feminism to bring monumental moments in 'herstory' to life. Watch the layers unfold as dancers portray the trials and triumphs generations of women have faced in an eclectic arrangement of storytelling. Meet the unyielding Suffragists who paved the way, our own Nola Sazerac Stormers, the role reversing Rosie the Riveters, 'bra burners’ who fought to pass landmark legislation, the evolved working woman, the objectified woman. HerStory highlights the rise of the modern movement for justice, where empowered women around the world have marched for humanity and change. Voices are raised, conversations are increasing, and actions are being taken to say Time's Up against sexual harassment and gender inequalities. Experience our unique production that is moving, celebratory, thought provoking, humorous, provocative, and certainly healing. Onward!
HerStory audiences rated their experience a 4.9 out of 5 and called the show “Amazing!”, a “Great and relevant performance”, and “Extremely inspiring and enlightening”!
