This short, powerful play looks at the damage caused by bullying on both the victim and those who perpetrate the crime, told in rhythms inspired by bebop jazz.
Due to Winter Storm Nemo, regular performances of X Dance ... Plus on February 8, 9, and 10 were cancelled. We will offer a special performance of the three dances with simple lighting on Thursday, February 12. We are exploring options for future performances of Games.
