Truth or Dare
Friday May 13, 2022
Created and Directed by Josh "Supa Josh" Culbreath & Emily "Lady Em" Pietruszka
Artists Emily Pietruszka and Joshua Culbreath are Snack Break Movement Arts; honoring the lineages of street dance movement languages in their bodies and communities, Snack Break uses theater spaces and contemporary movement practices to expand how audiences consume street dance.“Truth or Dare” is a new work that re-considers an old game, challenging the social binaries that are implicit in Emily and Josh's mutual stage presence. With playful text, audience participation, and movement poetry, the show asks performers and audience members to consider the revealing nature of vulnerability, the visceral nature of participation, and the consequences that come along with choosing a path.
