Red Clay Dance Company is excited to close out our 14th Season with the world premiere of Rest.Rise.Move.Nourish.Heal!

Rest. Rise.Move.Nourish.Heal is site-responsive dance ritual created by Founder and Artistic Director Vershawn Sanders-Ward and Company in collaboration with composer avery r. young, filmmaker Jovan Landry, and Kelley KFLEYE Moseley and Evelyn Danner.  This new work was developed in relation to the urban farm, ART ON THE FARM in GRANT PARK, a space stewarded and visually designed  by Erika Allen and Urban Growers Collective. Sanders-Ward visions this work as "a practice, a process, an uncovering of the beautiful labor of bringing us ALL home to land, reclaiming ancestral cultural traditions, technologies, and tools that can lead to individual and collective healing." We invite you to witness this righteous journey!

Lead Partners: Urban Growers Collective and Trillium Arts
