Keep the Positivity of 2019 Flowing with This Astute, Heartfelt Dance Performance

The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, a major not-for-profit center for music, opera, theater, and dance designed by Moshe Safdie, opened in 2011. Serving as a cultural cornerstone for Kansas City and the region, the Kauffman Center delivers extraordinary and diverse performing arts experiences. Honored as one of the World’s 15 Most Beautiful Concert Halls, the Kauffman Center attracts some of the world’s most renowned performers and entertainers.

Now, the venue welcomes the Störling Dance Theater and their latest show, Underground. It has been called “one of the most vivid, heartfelt, and theatrically astute pieces of dance theater ever to grace a Kansas City stage,” (Kansas City Star) and named one of the top ten performances of the decade by The Independent! Tickets must be purchased online through the Kauffman Center. Prices range from $30-$45 plus additional fees.

Choreographed by the duo of Mona Störling-Enna and Tobin James, Underground is a visual tapestry based on true stories of the Underground Railroad. With a cast of more than 50, featuring the talented artists of Störling Dance Theater, the production of this dramatic historical depiction has been hailed as a cultural gift, making it the perfect celebration of the Black History Month and a beautiful portrayal of the American Spirit.

Celebrating its 12th anniversary Underground will inspire and challenge, awaken and encourage—embraced by a wide and diverse audience from across Kansas City and beyond.

This event promises to be a fun time! Join your family, friends, and neighbors of The Royale at City Place Apartments in Overland Park, Kansas and see what all the buzz is about!
