Grades: 5-12 MTA: Ballet Memphis
Ballet Memphis is now in its 30th season and is recognized for its close ties to the region’s rich musical and literary heritage through dance, production and training. Their production of I Am includes four pieces from Founding Artistic Director Dorothy Gunther Pugh’s ideas around “giving voice to the voiceless.” The encompassing title I Am is inspired in part by the iconic “I Am A Man” signs held by striking sanitation workers in Memphis in 1968. None of the pieces are specifically about that moment in Memphis history, but reflect the larger, related idea that everyone matters, that dignity and kindness must ultimately speak louder than the superficial noises and dark currents all around.
