Grass Is Green
Presented by BC Movement Arts in partnership with Chutzpah! PLUS
Grass is Green is an evening-length work from San Francisco and New York City based UNA Productions. Performed with exquisite artistry by seven dancers and drag queen/live cellist/live pianist, Rose Nylons, Grass is Green considers cycles of destruction and rebirth both within humanity and the land we are a part of. This highly physical and exuberant work embodies a cycle of rebirth, representations of queer intimacy, and moments of communal joy, grief and connectivity.
