square product theatre presents DANCE NATION
Dance Nation
by Clare Barron
directed by Gleason Bauer
choreography by Laura Ann Samuelson, in collaboration with the cast

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. Featuring a multigenerational cast of women playing these pre-teen heroines, DANCE NATION is a play about ambition, growing up, and how to find our souls in the heat of it all.

Huda Aljidaa, Savanna Arellano, Anneliese Euler, Rodrigo Gallardo-Antúnez, Lorenzo González, Emily K. Harrison, Isabella Cho Jones, Nina Rolle, and Edith Weiss

stage manager: Rosie Glasscock

"A blazingly original play - marvel at how close what you see cuts to the bone." - The New York Times

"I have seen the future, and it is Dance Nation." - The Washington Post

"If you were ever a 13-year-old girl, Clare Barron's daring, raw Dance Nation will probably hit you hard...It's a brave, visceral, excitingly off-kilter barbaric yawp of a play. And it gets at something excruciatingly tender: the burden of modesty on young American women." - New York Magazine

DANCE NATION contains nudity, gore, coarse language, depictions of self-harm, simulated masturbation and descriptions of masturbation, and frank discussions of sex/sexual violence. May not be suitable for patrons under the age of 15.

This production includes a brief strobe effect and may be disruptive to people who are sensitive to light.
