About sunday morning at 7
sunday morning at 7 is a year-long project that includes the initial developments of an educational tool with aims to inspire young people to continue pursuing careers in the theatrical arts. We aspire to bring dance to wider audiences by using the technology available (live-streaming and film) to make digital versions of our disco ballet sanctuaries and fortresses as vibrant as possible. We believe in the transformative power of collectively experiencing art and are determined to create accessible dance experiences that connect people to their inner voices and to each other.

sanctuaries and fortresses is the culmination of a year-long interest in the relevancy of myth making and the ancestral practice of gathering for collective listening in contemporary, mainstream culture. It is an investigation into the politics of sensuality, femininity in a myriad of forms, and the passing on of traditional methods of coping through the use of storytelling, disco! and the radical recontextualization of existing myth.
