Tapestries 8.0 celebrates diversity of thoughts and ideas through each choreographer’s varying style and movement stories. From Hip Hop to Contemporary dance, the audience will experience dance artistry at its best.

About the Guest Performances
Inspired by “The Shadow-Work Journal” and “The Inner Work,” Da’Rius Malone embarks on confronting hidden hardships, healing their inner child, and breaking generational trauma through vulnerable movement creation with dancers’ stories intertwined.

Averie Mitchell-Brown explores groundbreaking dance performances celebrating Hip Hop social dances, street styles, and movements of the African diaspora. Set to revolutionary music, these performances foster dialogue, community, and transformative exploration of societal norms and perspectives.

Shoko Tamai invites you on a dance journey inspired by life’s transformations, from moon cycles to butterfly metamorphosis, exploring self-discovery, forgiveness, and intergenerational connections.
