BEYOND WORDS, the body as narrator
2:00 PM
The Backstage Theater located in Cohesion Center
Cohesion Dance Project presents Beyond Words, the body as narrator, a new evening length work conceived by nationally recognized choreographer and Cohesion’s 2022 Artist-in-Residence, Jennifer Glaws. Throughout the performance, dancers ride, reel, and traverse the terrain of narrative and dance. Tall tales, informal stories, folklore, heritage, and small talk are envisioned through diverse movement exploration, media, and sound design. Audiences can expect a contemporary Storytime, that investigates the body, memory, life's moments, and community.

Over the past three months, Jennifer and a unique cast of community and professional dancers collaboratively created this series of new works bringing stories to life through movement. The performance features a cast of 25 dancers of all ages and abilities, along with video projection from school outreach programming at Hawthorne and Kessler Schools where participants explored storytelling about history and heritage, using their own stories to generate movement conversations.
Beyond Words, the body as narrator will be presented May 20-22, 2022 at Cohesion Center’s Backstage Theater, located at 1020 Argyle St in Helena.
