Presenting: “Rumble Strips” April Sellers Dance Collective

Saturday, November 16th, 7:30-8:30 pm

Join us in the Sunroom studio for an evening of performance and conversation, featuring an open rehearsal of April Sellers Dance Collective’s newest work.

April Sellers Dance Collective (ASDC) – in residence at cfpa from September 2019 through June 2020 – is in the process of creating a new work. “Rumble Strips” uses a witty sense of humor to challenge and engage political, social, and cultural realities: power, patriarchy, and the male-female binary.  ASDC began work on this piece in June 2019, while in residence at Tofte Lake Center (Ely, MN.)

“Rumble Strips” is in its very early stages, with themes and narratives emerging and reshuffling in rehearsal. ASDC invites you to engage in their creation process, witness the earliest moments of inception, and reflect with them on what you see, helping to guide the work into its next phase of the development.

“Rumble Strips” will premiere in November 2020.

Cast: Jaffa Aharonov, Alexandra Bodnarchuk, Alys Ayumi Ogura, Joshua Lorris, Kathleen Pender, Tim Rehborg

cfpa’s ReClaim series is an assembly space to connect all kinds of audiences, artists, experiences, and stories. Our events explore the vitality and evolution of American identity, and the ways in which creative works reflect our lived experience (or not). Our events grapple with the stories we hear and see, the stories we make and tell, and the ways in which we are (or are not) changed by creative representations of our experiences. We support artists who engage fiercely with the complex and contradictory nature of the human experience. We support audiences who yearn for greater personal engagement between works of art and the daily life of our community. We assemble for lively questions, dynamic conversation, and to encourage new ways of understanding each other’s lives.
