Sometimes, life’s most tragic turns create a whole new outlook – resilience. PNC Arts Alive presents MADCO: RESILIENCE taking you on a restorative path from trauma to healing through stories of survivors. True to MADCO style, collaboration with community leaders and educators informs the choreography in this mainstage performance. Each piece is inspired by powerful, real-life lessons from those who have come through their darkest days to understand more about themselves and the world around them. When MADCO dancers lend their signature athleticism to this bravely emotional and honest conversation, expect nothing less than a transformative experience.
MADCO revives Art is a Guarantee of Sanity (2017), choreographed by RAWdance’s Ryan T. Smith and Wendy Rein, and originally commissioned by Dance St. Louis. Vibrating with tension and filled with luscious dancing, the piece navigates a path through an eerie, harrowing world in which our minds sometimes betray us. The work draws on the autobiographical story of Susannah Cahalan (Brain on Fire), the imagery of Louise Bourgeois, and the music of SF-based composer Surabhi Saraf.
