They Say a Lady Was the Cause of It
If you werent able to purchase tickets here, dont worry!! We will have some available at the door the night of the show! The box office will open at 6:30pm.

They Say a Lady Was the Cause of It is an evening-length dance production, that embodies a contemporary exploration of agency, identity, and relationships. Inspired, in part, by Orlando, by Virginia Woolf, and Undine Geht by Ingeborg Bachmann, this work examines the complexities of gender roles imposed by society, as well as the fight to reclaim individual narratives and rewrite what society has prescribed. The eleven dancers performing in this work contribute their own narratives and voices to this important conversation.
This exploration occurs in two parts;
Part 1: The Dinner Party
This piece exists as a framework or a setting, in which much of the content is created by the performers themselves. In keeping with the tradition of Tanztheater, a dance form born out of German Expressionism, this work is an exploration of individual experience and emotion, in which the performers will make use of theatrical methods (set, props, costumes), and will intentionally reference reality in the creation process.

Part 2, The Wet Frontier Between Me and Me
This is a raw and physical work, in which the performers contend with themselves, as they negotiate more directly their relationships with each other and with the audience.

The cast of female and non-binary dancers range vastly in age, life experience, and movement backgrounds- from professional to self-taught. Together they bring a rich and varied palette of movement and life experience to the work. Their performance will be accompanied by live, original music by composer and performer Matt LaRocca. Matts violin will be joined by Kyle Saunier on saxophone and string bass, Polly Vanderputten on cello, and Britta Fenniman Tonn on piano. Vocals will be performed by Roxanne Vought, and Allison and Cameron Steinmetz.

Doors open at 7pm, performances begin at 7:30pm.
$15 Student Tickets will be available for purchase at the door with a valid student ID.
Join us for a Q&A with the artists immediately following the Friday evening performance.
