GRAND FINALE
PERFORMANCES

THE HISTORIC CONCLUSION TO 25 YEARS OF

MOVING POSSIBILITY

After 25 years of groundbreaking contemporary dance performances in Northeast Ohio, nationally recognized, critically acclaimed, and beloved GroundWorks DanceTheater will present its grand finale performances. The FREE concerts are GroundWorks' parting gifts to our family, friends, contributors, and the communities we serve with gratitude for their tremendous support. These very special performances will feature three new dance works, including GroundWorks Founding Artistic Director David Shimotakahara's tribute to the music of jazz great Thelonious Monk, company Artist in Residence, Antonio Brown's latest to an original music and sound collage, and the commissioned work "The Sixth" by Seattle-based guest choreographer Olivier Wevers set to original music by American composer Philip Daniel. The piece is about stripping away the layers of distraction in our daily lives to rediscover our true selves and inner peace. Celebrate for the final time what Cleveland's Plain Dealer called the "Smoldering brilliance of one of Cleveland's cultural gems."
