SHAPESHIFT Theatrical, a diverse collective of 10 accomplished dancers, combines hip-hop moves and other dance styles with the lyricism of contemporary movement to illuminate the human experience. In “Grey Skies Blue,” dancers powerfully tell the story of a summer of friendships through interconnected vignettes, exploring emotional themes of social injustice, sexual identity, addiction and betrayal.
A group of diverse youth face a painful life altering experience when one of their African American brothers encounters a policeman; a young woman refuses to be defined by her family’s history of addiction; two lifelong friends embrace their journey of self-identity together; and a promising relationship is challenged by deceit. Join the dancers as they weather lows and highs, from the opening thunderstorm to the ending under the warmth of a new light.
SHAPESHIFT Dance Company is a highly acclaimed hip-hop/contemporary dance collective that uses a fusion of dance styles to create powerful theatrical productions tackling issues of social justice, loss, love and human emotions. SHAPESHIFT productions are beautifully told through interwoven vignettes that incorporate acting, dance and a range of musical selections from classical to contemporary to hip-hop and pop music. Performances include: Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York and the Indiana Repertory in Indianapolis.
