Threads Dance Project: Out of the Ashes


  • January 11, 2020 at 7:30 PM

Ordway Music Theater

This show takes an allegorical look at the fiery attacks on September 11, 2001, asking what was retrieved from the ashes. Choreography by Karen L. Charles and music by composer Peter Morrow will question why tragedy is needed to manifest our best humanity and whether we emerge “out of the ashes” better or worse. Threads will also premiere Objet de Désir Inaccessible, an examination of race and power via Marie-Guilhelmine Benoist’s painting Portrait d’une Negress.
