Dance Nation – TheatreLAB

By | June 16, 2019

Dance Nation by Clare Barron
Direction by Maggie Roop
July 11 – August 3 at The Basement

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at the Boogie Down Grand Prix in Tampa Bay. But in Clare Barron’s raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié and jeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their power.

Winner of the 2017 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize!
Finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama!

NOTE: We recommend this show for ages 15 and up due to strong language, adult content, and locker room nudity.
