Beauty, the Beast

Followed by Q&A

7:00PM :: Wisconsin Historical Society

Beauty, The Beast: A Dance-Theater Production is a collaboration between drum & body, voice & spirit, crying & calling. Expressed is the story of a woman desperately trying to hold her appearance together while harboring within, a spirit which is destroyed. Originally staged for a 10-person ensemble, Brooks taps into her African & Filipino heritages to sing, dance and explore issues of domestic violence, drug abuse, bi-raciality and mental illness, during a quest for self-acceptance and inner peace. She coins this production as her unabashedly honest “Breathing Self-Portrait”.
