What's Cracking underground?

Ground Rhythm is currently raising money for the start of a 2-year long project called,

"The Urban Circle Project".

As apart of the overall project, We are currently in our second phase of development and preparation for a live staged production of our 2018 Dance Film, "Torque- The body survives", a series of short dances which will premiere in the Spring of 2020. Aside from Imprisonment, each of these works hints at our continued curiosity to research and examine the body in survival mode,
especially among black & brown communities.

Project Description:

The basis of The Urban Circle project is to use dance as a tool for cultivating embodied research as well as a vehicle for fostering the development of self-image. We are interested in researching how black and brown communities are wired to survive and exploring how that manifests in the body in tandem with how white communities are wired to survive--as a catalyst for discovering new modes of equity and its influences towards cultural preservation in black and brown communities.

Ground Rhythm Dance Project is a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Ground Rhythm Dance Project will be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
