POP Performance: Wild She Dances

Wild She Dances

WILD SHE DANCES
SHAKING MORNING

TICKETS: $15 IN ADVANCE, $20 AT THE DOOR

This work is an abstract exploration centered on themes of displacement, questioning what makes a home, and examining how loss, leaving, and new hopes can redefine the idea of home. shaking morning is a journey of chaos, familial bonds, survival, and is rooted in moments of tenderness, athleticism, and most of all, human connection. Wild She Dances is partnering with the International Rescue Committee, which advocates for the rights of refugees and immigrants, provides legal help for asylum seekers, and helps to place refugees in jobs, schools, and society.

*A portion of our ticket sales will be donated to the International Rescue Committee.

Bethany Logan, artistic director of Wild She Dances, graduated from Ohio University with a BFA in Dance & Choreography and a Minor in Psychology. Logan’s choreography has been performed in New York City and Mumbai, India, at the University of Dayton and Ohio University, and was selected for the American College Dance Association Gala Concert.
