Site/Sight—#DOMINOES

Summer 2020, DanceCircus brought together poets and youth, dancers and choreographer in the Site/Sight Project collaborative project. Funds from Wisconsin Arts Board Creative Communities-Local Arts placed spoken-word poets Unique Ross and Ashley Ammorelle Smith at Neighborhood House to facilitate workshops with 10 youth. These young poets wrote powerful, nuanced, emotion-filled words about their summer of 2020.


Fall 2020 saw the live flash dance performance of Site/Sight – canceled. We made a pivot to create a dance/spoken-word/video. Ten company and community dancers took to the streets and alleys, parks and parking lots of Avenues West to dance for the camera.
