Country: United States

Running time: 1 hour (youth performance); 1 hour 45 minutes (full performance)
From the heartbeat of life that we all share to the arrhythmic noise of conflict, racial divide, and miscommunication, Tapestry Dance Company takes a diverse and dynamic look at “The American Dream.” How does an individual navigate through the complexities of race, culture, gender identity, and equal rights? This work poses these questions through a tapestry of unique individual voices and stories. Through historical traditions and new works of tap dance set to a eclectic musical score of spoken-word poetry, hip-hop, jazz and American classics, Tapestry sets a rhythm of communication, hope, and healing in our “What’s politically correct?” world.
