Photo Coverage: DANCE NATION Celebrates Opening Night at Playwrights Horizons

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they'll claw their way to the top at the Boogie Down Grand Prix in Tampa Bay. But in Clare Barron's raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié and jeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their power.

The production will feature scenic design by Arnulfo Maldonado, costume design by Ásta Bennie Hostetter, lighting design by Barbara Samuels and sound design byBrandon Wolcott. Production Stage Manager is Erin Gioia Albrecht.

DANCE NATION is the fifth production of the theater company's 2017/2018 Season. It opened just last night at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater, with a limited engagement through Sunday, May 27.
