Five true stories told through dance, poetry, and a lamp.
from Pedamentum Dance Theatre (Cincinnati, OH)
Primary Lineup – Dance/Physical Theatre (Dance, Mental Health Themes, Storytelling)
“We are shining a light on the stories no one wants to hear. We are dancing the stories we are still too afraid to speak. We are sculpting something beautiful out of the word-shrapnel you left in us.” Experience five true stories told through dance, poetry, and light. Created by damaged people—for damaged people.
In 2015, artist Mandie Reiber set out into Over-the-Rhine and began interviewing strangers about their greatest challenges. Since then, hundreds of stories have been collected from local citizens of every ethnicity, age, and occupation. Founded by Mandie Reiber, Pedamentum uses a unique collaborative process to transform these true stories into artistic experiences, including songs, poems, and choreography. Our mission is to develop arts experiences that provide honest perspectives on relevant social issues; to use art as a language and a vehicle for social change; and to create hybrid performance work that blends various art forms harmoniously through collaboration and exploration.
