The Wahzhazhe Osage Ballet will be performing at The Mansion Theatre for Performing Arts in August on the 6th and 7th, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.
Wahzhazhe is a contemporary ballet that mesmerizes audiences from the first beat of the rhythmic drums to the final curtain close. Audiences are surprised by the powerful storytelling, and even those who are not ballet lovers return to the show time and again to be moved by the story that unfolds in front of them. This ballet depicts a shared history of Native American people, but the specific story told is that of the Osage Nation. Beyond its cultural relevance, the human-interest and historical account has relevance for all Americans. This ballet evokes a visceral reaction as the audience is introduced to 400 years of Osage history, which encompasses both the positive and negative outcomes of a culture that was once untouched by outside influence. The audience is carried along as pre-contact people are swept into the flowing current of the European incursion that brought unimaginable changes, disease, wealth, modernization, death, and ultimately a synthetization into modern American culture.
