Barking Legs hosts spoken word & dance performance
On Saturday at 8 p.m., Barking Legs Theater will be hosting an evening of dance and spoken word which will delve into the important global topics of social justice, personal power, and freedom.
Contemporary Performing Arts of Chattanooga (COPAC) is the nonprofit organization in support of performing artists in the Southeast and they are partnering with Amanda Cantrell Roche and the Blue Moves Dance Co.
Roche is a teaching artist, guiding others in art, dance, and written word. She is also an activist and volunteers for other programs such as Poverty & The Arts and Nashville CARES. Her passions are dance, writing, and social justice, and her biggest passion is combining the three.
With the help of COPAC, Barking Legs, and Blue Moves Dance Co., she is doing just that. The night will be filled with powerful, elegant dance and spoken word by local Chattanooga artists. The dance is a four-part movement and the night will conclude with an informative panel of social justice organizations such as Chattanooga Organized for Action and Concerned Citizens for Justice.
The most powerful part of this performance is each person in the audience is treated as a part of the community, not just a viewer. The goal of this night is to show the compassion and good nature each individual possesses and what the goodness we hold can give to the world around us.
Roche and the rest of the Blue Movies Dance Co. want you to join the community and the discussion. Visit barkinglegs.org or call (423) 624-5347 for more information.
