img_3005Super is for the kid inside your heart.  It is hysterical, ridiculous, and at times even devastating.  The piece takes a journey from reality, into a fantasized comic book adventure and back.  It looks at the icons of “super hero and sidekick” and the impressions we carry of those roles from childhood to adulthood.  The imaginary exploit reminds the characters to confront reality with the optimism of youth and to cherish a true friend.  Super depicts how bravery may really be nothing more than having a powerful and convincing imagination.  The work features dancer Joshua Reaver alongside Kaley Pruitt, with music selections by Europe, Frank Sinatra, and Ben Harper.
Green Space’s Take Root Series is a monthly curated series that supports dance makers by providing an opportunity to show a half evening work paired with another artist.  Kaley Pruitt Dance will be performing alongside U R B A N / T R I B E.  We hope you come out to support both companies in this shared evening of great dancing!
