KC Fringe Festival's "Best of Venue" winners from 2016 & 2017, VidaDance and Lucia Aerial, are coming together to create THE show to see in 2018. RISE follows a young woman’s journey through darkness as she becomes entangled in the world of human trafficking. Dance and aerial art are combined in a spellbinding depiction of a secret, vile world, and what it will take to overcome it. RISE is based on true stories and events as shared during collaboration with Kansas City anti-trafficking organizations.
*Please note: this show is not recommended for younger viewers and contains adult situations and simulated violence. Audience members are advised that the show may contain triggers for some.
What do flamingos, stardust, umbrellas, Michael Bublé, and the inner thoughts of dancers have in common? A VidaDance show, of course! Returning to the KC Fringe stage after winning “Best of Venue” last year, VidaDance once again delivers an entertaining, eclectic, and engaging show for all ages and interests. Blending ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, tap, and ballroom, with all new pieces by a variety of choreographers, including many of the company members, this whimsical professional company offers something for everyone.
