reEMERGEnce is a collection of dances exploring archetypes and the world of the “persona.” Persona comes from the Latin word meaning “mask.” As expected from MorrisonDance, the performance will include a pinch of humor with a scoop of introspection, blending creative contributions from the dancers themselves. The evening will include several intimate duets from MorrisonDance’s repertoire, and four new dances inspired by Jungian personality theory, ranging from reflective to tongue-in-cheek choreography.
Directed and choreographed by Sarah Morrison, contributing artists and performers include David Lenahan, Mawusi Nenonene, Taylor Raines, and Ian Smith, with Molly Haslag and Matthew Robinson returning from Nashville, TN as guest performers.
MorrisonDance will be following the guidelines set forth by the Reinberger Auditorium and Talespinner Theatre: All visitors must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.
MorrisonDance works to create viscerally aesthetic performances and has been recognized for its unique and collaborative work in Ohio. Partnering with organizations such as BrainMaster, NASA, Cleveland Public Theatre, Ingenuity Cleveland, and the Center for Arts Inspired Learning. With over 50 original creations, MorrisonDance has been honored and supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Ohio Arts Council, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, the Puffin Foundation, Neighborhood Connections, and OhioDance. In its 24th year, the company is directed by Sarah Morrison, whose choreography has been presented internationally, and has been described as “zany” and “endearing” by Cool Cleveland and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. This is no ordinary dance company.
