Through the vocabulary of dance, folklore, real-life stories, and video interviews of everyday teens, Let’s Talk About IT! is a performance that deftly and humorously explores intimacy, relationships and the choices many teens face in the twists of every day. Let's Talk About IT! intertwines artistic mediums with grace and subtlety; movement is sculpted with words; videos are projected through dance and story. The movement tells the physical story of the teen body as it transitions from childhood to adulthood and the writing weaves the retelling of traditional folklore with real-life teen interviews. This melding of old and new storytelling, develops the story of being a teen in a hyper-techno age.
Let's Talk About IT! premiered in 2009 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. It has also been performed at the Ailey Citigroup Theater and the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center in New York City and Western Wyoming College Theater in WY. This program was supported, in part, by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council On The Arts, Rosenthal Family Foundation, and Individual Contributions to Treehouse Shakers.
