Join us as we learn about this exciting new work from Nashville Ballet. Commissioned by the League of Women Voters of Nashville, 72 Steps takes an empowering look at the struggle to pass the 19th Amendment while highlighting Tennessee’s vital role in granting women the right to vote. Depicting a fight that spanned over 72 years, choreographer Gina Patterson draws parallels between past and present. Through the lens of the suffrage movement, she explores basic human rights, civic responsibility, and the continuing battle for a more equitable society. The language of ballet brings an evocative physical symbolism to this story of persistence and protest. Dancers grapple with barriers and move in and out of costume elements that illuminate the era’s male and female perspectives.
