BOY BREAKING GLASS

Alesandra Seutin / Vocab Dance
24.04.2020
20:00 - 21:00

How does one survive in a system that is not always embracing you? And how can we keep smiling in the midst of darkness?

Re-imagine a society that supports fairness and equality, allowing for the actuality of breaking through the proverbial glass ceiling. Let Alesandra Seutin | Vocab Dance take you on that journey. With dynamic and commanding movement coupled with spell bounding rhythms, Boy Breaking Glass is a dance theatre ensemble piece inspired by the poem of the same name written by Gwendolyn Brooks -the first Black female poet in the United States to receive a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.

With a mix of live dance and music, the work features Alesandra Seutin’s signature style of Afro-European Dance Theatre. Expect a vigorous, powerful, thought-provoking and inspiring show.
