Music soothes us, shakes us, astounds us and breaks our hearts. In this evening length work, Sarah Bush Dance Project rocks through the life of a woman rocked by women. From baby steps to coming out, and first crush to lost love, music by women from the past four decades binds the story of many to one and one to many – transforming everyday memories to the history we all share. With its eclectic score of unforgettable voices, this kinetic, hybrid work pays tribute to the women who rock us.
Celebrate Mother’s Day weekend with us!
Sarah Bush Dance Project’s Rocked By Women is a 75-minute multimedia dance theater performance. With original composition and sound design by Julie Wolf, the score features music by women from the 70’s to the 00’s, such as Cris Williamson, Tracy Chapman, Joan Jett, Queen Latifah, Bikini Kill, Ani DiFranco and Missy Elliott. The choreography weaves hip hop, modern, ballet and contact improvisation to express the story of a woman’s journey of growing up, coming out, falling in love and experiencing heartbreak.
Rocked By Women celebrates the positive impact of lesbian musicians, feminists and activists from the Women’s Music Movement. This moving tribute appeals to fans of music, dance, and theater alike. Sarah Bush’s vivacious, bold, high-energy choreography entertains and inspires audiences.
