A winner is crowned at the end of the show, winning fame and glory and the chance of developing their new dance into a 2 night run at The Tank.

The Moving Architects’ Americana continues Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton’s focus of embodying past and distant spaces in the heightened present of live performance.  Americana looks to the iconic images and interpersonal struggles of the migrating American family during the Great Depression era.  Through exactingly rhythmic movement, tornadoes of meaningful interaction, and heartfelt gentleness, this women-centric work exemplifies the expansiveness of the Midwest prairies, fragility of the weathered spirit, and grit needed to survive rough times.
