1933. The Stock Market Crash of 1929 left thousands of people out in the cold. These were desperate times that called for desperate measures - hence, the rise of the dance marathon fad!  Here in Minneapolis, Callum deVillier and Vonnie Kuchinski won’t stop until they set a World Record and go home with the prize money.  After all, how hard could it be to dance for a few hours... days... weeks… months?  This electrifying new work will explore the psychology of the dance marathons - what motivated people to participate in this crazy endeavor?  What drew in the spectators? How far can we push the human body and spirit?
