“I have seen the future, and it is Dance Nation.”
The Washington Post

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. and if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at the Boogie Down Grand Prix in Tampa Bay. But in Clare Barron’s raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié and jeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their power. The New York Times calls this a “Critic’s Pick! A blazingly original play." The play examines the challenges and triumphs of growing up, coming of age, and finding one’s soul in the heat of it all and interrogates what “womanhood” is, and embodies a powerful release of rage, joy, and liberation. Contains adult language, adult and sexual content.

Presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
