THE PURPLE STATE: featuring 3 distinct female choreographers with deep connections to Ohio. From a state steeped in political drama and cities steadily rising out of cornfields, there maintains a drive into the theoretical, performative, and choreographic work of Kristina Isabelle, Meghan Durham-Wall, and Erin Carlisle Norton. Pulling in themes surrounding the complexity of interacting, the violet found in Kandinsky artwork, and magical realism, their work keeps dance charged and relevant in Middle America.
