STG Presents Erased as a part of the Nights at the Neptune 2015 series.
Erased is a dance theater piece conceived and choreographed by Dani Tirrell in collaboration with Color Lines Dance Ensemble. Through movement, live singing, spoken word and video, Color Lines Dance Ensemble tackle issues of race, misogyny, colorism, hair, body image and the complex but rewarding relationships women of color share with each other. This story is told through the lens of 8 young girls of color, ages 12 to 17. The driving question that is at the center of Erased is, “How do young women view themselves in a world that tells them they are not enough?”
One of the dancers describes Erased as, “A symphony of thoughts, emotions, feelings and experiences of young girls of color, with notes of feminism, self-empowerment, breaking the “status quo” and coming into who we are as young women.” -Talaya Logan
