The Running Show, a new show by Monica Bill Barnes, is inspired by the company’s award winning off-Broadway production that turns dance into a live sporting event.
The Running Show documents the life of a dancer through movement, interviews, and stories. The show will feature a large cast of local performers. Tampa dancers ranging in age from 12 years old to 84 will join Monica Bill Barnes on stage. Robbie Saenz de Viteri interviews each of the cast members, incorporating their voices and stories into the show, giving the audience an unprecedented look into the life of a dancer as a new kind of sports hero, one that keeps moving against all odds. After a week of intensive rehearsals and interviews with the cast the culminating performance uniquely reflects each new community of performers.
