Grant or Program
National Dance Project Production Grant
Grant Amount

Rumble Strips uses gender identity as an entry point to address our current fractured political landscape, where the willingness to work collectively is hindered by rigid allegiance to single perspectives. In a shared world, we must carve out the dangerous space where we align ourselves with people who do not match our own identities, race, gender, or political agenda. An evening-length ensemble work incorporating movement, music, text, and humor, Rumble Strips is performed outdoors for an immersive yet physically distant experience. Choreographer April Sellers addresses friction points between what we have been told we are, what we want to be, and how we come together.

Estimated Artist Fee: $16,000/performance; $28,000/week.
