     Yuhas & Dancers, contemporary dance collective from Columbia, SC, presents Physical Poetry, a collaboration with Charlestons esteemed Poet Laureate, Marcus Amaker.  "Physical Poetry" is a movement narrative that reveals our position of response in the face of adversity. Latching onto Amakers words we illustrate the yearning for a safe space where we are free to live out our multiplicity of labels: black / gay / female to name a few. The 45-minute long work performed by the all-female troupe of all shapes, sizes, and colors travels through three sections: Under My Skin; Our Love Affair with Conflict; Remnants.  Reflecting the tension of our country, the work reveals elements of our stuckness, pleading for space to breathe in a world where Donald Trump is president and hate crimes have become daily news. Through tension and release, humility is proposed as our clearest answer as Amakers words resonate through movement and silence. We feel that our work is being created for a time such as this, especially to be premiered in the South. To complete the hour-long performance, we invite audience members into a conversation, investigating what may have been brought up for them.

    Yuhas & Dancers (Y&D) is a dance company based in Columbia, SC under the direction of Meredith Yuhas.  14 women strong, the group strives to empower dancers of all shapes, sizes, and colors through professional opportunities in dance.  Emerging out of the Columbia College Dance Program, the company works as advocates of body confidence, honest conversation, and confronting inequality specifically in socio-cultural norms of the Southern United States. Y&D made their debut at the Asheville Fringe Festival January 2018, winning Festival Fan Favorite now two years in a row.  In addition, the group was awarded Most Inspiring Act for their 2019 evening-length performance, Physical Poetry (2018), created in collaboration with Charlestons Esteemed Poet Laureate, Marcus Amaker.  The group produces local dance shows including Columbias Emerging Choreographers Show and a night of dance at The Free Verse Poetry Festival in Charleston, SC, uniting developing and established choreographers of SC.  Y&D made their Northeast premiere at PortFringe Theater Festival in Portland, ME, winning Critics Choice and Bates Dance Festival Informal Showcase in Lewiston, ME.  Additionally, the company offers community workshops in kinesthetic empathy and embodied activism and believes this work continues to make them a dynamic force on and off the stage.
