The Seldoms: "Power Goes" at the MCA

Event Type
Event Description

A landmark dance/theatre collaboration from The Seldoms, Power Goes is choreographer Carrie Hanson’s astute study of power, using dance to investigate how it is wielded to make or stop social change.

Turning to the legacy of President Lyndon Baines Johnson and the tumultuous era of the 1960s, The Seldoms and their multimedia collaborators offer explosive, muscular physicality, keen wit, and total-environment staging in this exhilarating inquiry into the forces that cause – or block – progress toward a better world.

The performance takes place March 20-22 and March 26-29 in the Edlis Neeson Theater at the MCA. The MCA provided commissioning support to develop Power Goes.
