As a part of Subrosa Dance Collective’s evening length work Heirloom, a collection of works that emerged from leaping into the dynamic waters of family narratives and freeing untold stories within ancestry. As ever, the Collective's exploration into the tapestries of how we find ourselves in this world renders a performance that is poignant and amusing, sweetly familiar and satisfying. Like suddenly breathing quietly into the attic of our family homes, the pieces of Heirloom speak to the layers of us that are uncovered, dusted off, opened up and examined.
“In its latest piece, Heirloom, the dance collective proves it’s possible to be youthful without being childish, feminine without being frivolous, sensual without being exploitative, relevant without being preachy, and funny without being laughable. This young, pretty company is not to be taken lightly.”
