On Tour Fall 2021

Hold My Hand — Coming to a town near you!

Contemporary Dance with an Undercurrent of Hope

ARENA DANCES tours hold my hand, a work built on the score “Requiem” by Minnesota composer and 2018 McKnight Fellowship recipient, Joshua Clausen. Inspired by Sophie Chou’s sonification of gun violence statistics, intimate movement and lush soundscapes unravel a politically charged central theme: gun violence in America. Holding nothing back, the dancers tap into the emotional impact of this reality, blurring the lines between artistry and activism. Throughout the performance runs an undercurrent of hope—a sense that society is on the brink of learning the difficult lessons of the past, and could finally be ready to progress.
