1933. The Stock Market Crash of 1929 left thousands of people out in the cold. These were desperate times that called for desperate measures — hence, the rise of the dance marathon fad! Here in Minneapolis, Callum deVillier and Vonnie Kuchinski won’t stop until they set a World Record and go home with the prize money. After all, how hard could it be to dance for a few hours... days... weeks… months? This electrifying new work will explore the psychology of the dance marathons - what motivated people to participate in this crazy endeavor? What drew in the spectators? How far can we push the human body and spirit?

World Premiere
Book by Carson Kreitzer
Choreography by Regina Peluso
Directed by Anya Kremenetsky
Musical direction by Doug Rohde
Created in collaboration with Collide Theatrical Dance Company
