Shay Kuebler/Radical System Art: Glory

On April 24, 2017, in News, by Jessica Beck

Beyond dance, Shay Kuebler / Radical System Art represents movement with meaning – a blunt force of power explodes on the stage with a message to look at the glorification (Glory) of violence in media, childhood and how we’re watching it go by –are you willing to do anything about it? Are you affected by bullying? A dark intensity seeps into the steps of these skilled performers who rise into new realms of dance by marrying martial arts, hip-hop, ballet, and theatre.
