(CANCELLED) 72 Steps

Presented by Nashville Ballet at Nashville Ballet Studio A (Martin Center), Nashville TN

Aug 22 - 28 2020
(CANCELLED) 72 Steps

On sale Monday, June 1.

Commissioned by the League of Women Voters of Nashville and their Perfect 36 Supporters, Gina Patterson’s 72 Steps takes an empowering and celebratory look at the ratification of the 19th Amendment and the vital role Tennessee played in it.

Patterson’s work transports classrooms and audiences to the early 1900s as camps in favor and opposition of suffrage frantically battle for support in the days leading up to the Tennessee legislature’s history making vote.

Depicting a fight that began with the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 and spanned over 72 years, this ballet transcends time in a rallying call to action designed to create dialogue surrounding the past and modern-day barriers to a unified and equitable society.

Concept, Choreography and Direction by Gina Patterson
Music by Jordan Brooke Hamlin
Costume Design by Jocelyn Melechinsky
