STÖRLING DANCE THEATER'S
Störling Dance Theater’s UNDERGROUND is not only a storytelling dance theater production that has created a new tradition in Kansas City.
The vision for Storling Dance Theater’s UNDERGROUND began in the year 2000 as a positive approach to addressing growing divisiveness in our culture over race. Production began in 2004 and it took four years to complete the original music, costumes, choreography and design. The cast included 60 professional and amateur artists from an extremely diverse group of backgrounds, neighborhoods and perspectives. The result of this project is multi-faceted: Deep relationships across socio-economic and cultural divides, dialogue and listening that has brought understanding and active community, and a shared passion to work together for everyone’s good. We want to bring this experience to everyone in America that is looking for solutions, unity and opportunity for all our citizens.. The Underground Railroad is our roadmap. We have done this before. We can do this again.
The audience and media reception of UNDERGROUND was so overwhelming (chosen as one of the Top performances for Kansas that year and for the decade) that it was repeated the following year in 2009. Now, having performed its eighth consecutive year, there’s no slowing down for this dance company nor the inspiring message that it brings to its community. The story of the Underground Railroad told in this unique and powerful way is a message that speaks to us today and shines as a beacon in the night calling us to safety and unity.
We hope to share this experience and its fruit with your city. We want to engage your community, share the creative process and deliver the story of the Underground Railroad in a way that will inspire all who attend for years to come.
