The Radio Show
September 16 – 17
With a mix of classic soul and hip-hop and classical compositions, The Radio Show creates a rhythm that is hypnotic and unpredictable. This high-energy dance performance investigates the effects of the abrupt discontinuation of a black radio station on its community. Memories are met with disruption and loss, yet not without a fight. The cast of seven includes Abraham, one of the most captivating movers dancing today.
Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
