About

Grey Skies Blue
Presented by SHAPESHIFT Theatrical from Minneapolis, MN

A young woman is forced to confront her past when her estranged mother suddenly appears at her doorstep. Two lifelong friends face a journey of cultural and self-identity together. A promising relationship is jeopardized by deception. Can any of them trust their friends or companions? And how well do they truly know themselves?

The accomplished young dancers of SHAPESHIFT Theatrical tell these powerful stories of a summer of friendships in the ensemble’s trademark style of interwoven vignettes. Exploring emotional themes of family, race, love, and betrayal, this diverse collective combines styles of Hip Hop dance with the lyricism of contemporary movement.

Most enjoyed by age 9 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
