Humanities Roadshow: The Shire – An Exploration of New Hampshire Through Contemporary Dance
Weaving together the natural beauty, history, and culture of New Hampshire's seven regions, The Shire, performed by NSquared Dance, explores the Granite State through movement and contemporary dance. A deep appreciation for New Hampshire is reflected in the costume design, compositional elements, and the dancers, all of whom are native to the state. With reverence for the state’s past, the production illuminates the changes in New Hampshire through dance “snapshots” of our evolving regions. New Hampshire Humanities is honored to help bring The Shire, originally sponsored by the NH Charitable Foundation and NH Dance Collaborative, to new areas in the Granite State.
Tickets ($30) are available through the Lebanon Opera House. Proceeds from tickets sales go to support NSquared Dance.
