Dayna Hanson's "Gloria's Cause" filmed as part of OntheBoards.tv, a contemporary performance on-demand site.
Iconic and not-so-iconic moments from the Revolutionary War come together in a dance-driven, documentary-infused rock musical by Dayna Hanson. Created with Dave Proscia and Peggy Piacenza, this new work takes a layered, colorful and gritty look at the roots of America's inequities. Doubling as a live band, the show's multi-talented cast also includes Maggie Brown, Jim Kent, Wade Madsen, Paul Matthew Moore, Pol Rosenthal and Jessie Smith.
Hanson was one of the original founders of 33 Fainting Spells, a company that gained notoriety nationwide from 1994-2006 for their highly conceptual blend of dance and theater. In her post-33 Fainting Spells career, Hanson has received a Guggenheim Fellowship (2006), created an evening-length performance (2006's We Never Like Talking About The End) and directed several short films.
