Join us for a night of dance, hardcore rock and roll, and hip-hop as Ananya Dance Theatre, A Life Underground, and See More Perspective take the stage at the Bedlam Lowertown – located on the Union Depot Green Line station – for Gazillion Strong’s first show at the venue.
10pm: Ananya Dance Theatre
11pm: A Life Underground
12am: See More Perspective
Proud to present this new work where Ananya Dance Theatre artists collaborate with Queen Drea. What happens when the Queen of Neo-Soul Jazz intersects with the angular rhythms and dysjunctive mudras of ADT’s unique version of Contemporary Indian dance to explore stories of women in a violent society, illnesses, and healing? Come see for yourself at Bedlam! ADT intersects contemporary Indian dance with a philosophy of social justice to create original dance theater about the extraordinary work and dreams of women around the world, and to inspire audiences through visual and emotional engagement. Inspired by the commitment and passion of women’s movements globally, our work links women’s stories with movement to invoke broader questions about social justice.
A Life Underground via the hardcore band’s Facebook page: We created this name because growing up we were different from everyone, we didn’t “fit in” with everyone, we were counted as weird, creepy anything you can name it, we were always under people they seen us as “UNDERGROUNDERS”.
When we all met each other at school we just started talking and we all found out that we are all the same and we lived our lives under things and thats when we decide to name ourselves A Life Underground!
See More Perspective’s Sex Tape (Or My Reponse to Our Morbidly Underdeveloped Sex Education) via his Bandcamp page: The Sex Positive hip hop album you didn’t know you were waiting for.
Like many revolutionary acts, it started with a ridiculous idea. See More’s brother, producer Nye, made a folder full of beats sampling 1970’s pornos and suggested that See More write dirty sex raps over them.
And with that, See More Perspective, best known for his upbeat, positive, politically-and-culturally
Mixing the offbeat irreverence of the original concept with his own progressive, inclusive, sex-positive philosophy, See More crafted a subversive concept album that is equal parts funky, funny and feminist, tackling serious issues and concepts like consent, safe sex, and objectification with a sharp wit, unrelenting humanity, and one of the most agile tongues in the Twin Cities hip hop scene… so to speak.
