It's 1989 and Heidi is trying to earn enough money to go to college by giving speeches about the Constitution in American Legion Halls across the country. When she loses the first round to Becky Dobbins because her speech isn't personal enough, she decides to go deep. Starting with her great great grandmother, a mail-order bride who died of "melancholia," she traces the effects of a single sentence of the Ninth Amendment on generations of women in her family - and on the violent men they married.

SEASONED is a hybrid dance film and performance which navigates the spectrum of emotions that arise from human relationships. As one dancer moves through time, people and seasons shift, and viewers catch glimpses of distinct, intimate moments. Feelings of joy, vulnerability, frustration, desperation, chaos, and nostalgia emerge from the four nuanced, highly contrasting yet cohesive duets, allowing the audience to connect with their own experiences of love, loss, and friendship.

All performances are at the wild project (195 E. 3rd Street, between Avenues A & B).
Tickets can be purchased online at The Box Office opens one hour prior to curtain.
