Every summer, professional dancers from MorrisonDance hit the streets in their series “The City is Our Playground”. Using a combination of choreography from their latest theatrical productions and interactive improvisations, these performers bring the art of dance to street level through “choreovising!”, making it feel as though you are walking through the streets of Europe without leaving town! This year’s theme features dancers from “The Sense of Wonder” created for the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes.  Check out the beautiful film featuring the original choreography presented by the Shaker Arts Council on vimeo.

“The City is Our Playground” was created in 2003, and is directed and choreographed by Sarah Morrison.
2014 performers are:

Fatima AbuZahrieh, Heather Baur, Jenni Hankey, Taliesin Reid Haugh, Bethany Schulz, and Hope Schultz, with music collaborations with Trepanning Trio.


MorrisonDance can remain true to their creative and experimental nature due to the generous support of the Rauschenberg Foundation (NYC), and we are supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture in addition to the generosity of our individual supporters.
