Choreographer Taisha Paggett’s verse chorus is an evening-length work that deconstructs and makes use of Zumba, the popular dance fitness program. Focusing on the structures of repetition that characterize the aerobics form, the work uses an instructional format to highlight how pop culture creates a sense of shared knowledge. Paggett questions how the dance continues to shape identity and construct a sense of individual self despite the dance’s mass marketing and mass consumption. verse chorus was commissioned on the occasion of Fore.

Please note this program was previously advertised as happening at 5pm. The time has been changed to 7pm. Apologies for any confusion.
