After last year’s inaugural production at the Cedar Cultural Center, A Cripple’s Dance returns to the Twin Cities, this time on the Southern’s stage. At the heart of the piece is the radical notion that all bodies can dance. Created and performed by people with spinal cord injuries, as well as able-bodied participants, the work uses physical expression to share the experience of living with a physical disability. The project was initiated by local musician Gabriel Rodreick, who goes by the stage name Freaque. Utilizing breath, rhythm, and a whole lot of heart, this is a work unlike any dance you’ve seen before, offering new perspectives on acceptance and hope.
