3Arts award winning choreographer Monique Haley and company Cofounder & composer Joe Cerqua are exploring a modern African American experience through traditional African artistic mode. The first iteration of this piece debuted in 2018, and audiences were entranced by the athletic movement and soulful soundtrack. Talk with Monique and Joe about where they're taking the piece in 2019 and experience and respond to the first preview, performed by members of our company.

Tickets $8 in advance, $15 at the door. $18 Inside/Out pass, available online, includes access to all three Inside/Out events (June - August 2019).

Inside/Out is Cerqua Rivera's unique interactive event series that showcases works in progress and invites you INSIDE the creative process. Each event includes performance of new work-in-the-making, conversation with the artists, and the opportunity for you to shape the new work with your feedback and input.
