Hold on to your hats, and get your second-line umbrellas ready for the New Orleans premiere of Takin It to the Roots, a new, exhilarating dance performance work by Michelle N. Gibson. Choreographed and performed by Gibson, her "communal ritual" falls within the style that she describes as "Second Line Aesthetic." And of course, when the music strikes up, no one can sit still in their seats. The show ends with a full-blown second line, led by the Free Agents Brass Band, with the audience literally dancing in the streets. During her current NPN residency, Gibson will work on movement with youth, senior citizens, and the community. A master class is in the works for professional dancers.
