On Friday, May 8, you cannot imagine our surprise when we were greeted by this poster as we walked up to the the Capitol Theatre at the Ohio State Office building.
This piece, Blue Grass, was created by choreographer Susan Hadley, now at the Ohio State University. Blue Grass was originally commissioned in 1998 by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago with support from the Choo San Goh and H. Robert Magee Foundation.
To see the full performance, here is the video.
