MANIFESTO 

 

Nine dancers twist in motion as thunderous percussion rises. In front of a watermelon velvet background, on a grand elevated set, are nine drum kits and drummers.

In precision concert, they unleash rebellion, command obedience, radiate wonder and show tenderness. A tattoo to optimism—its Busby Berkeley opulence meets pounding percussion in a rallying cry for solidarity. Manifesto is a tornado of movement, sound and will.
