Digital 72 Steps
Choreography by Gina Patterson
Music by Jordan Hamlin
Costume design by Jocelyn Melechinsky
Originally commissioned by the LWV of Nashville and their Perfect 36 Supporters in 2018, 72 Steps explores themes of basic human rights, civic responsibility and the ongoing battle for a more equitable society through the lens of the suffrage movement.
Inspired by Tennessee’s vital role in the ratification of the 19th Amendment, Nashville Ballet will share a digital presentation of Gina Patterson’s 72 Steps on Tuesday, August 18 — the exact date the Tennessee legislature ratified the bill granting women the right to vote 100 years earlier. Made available for streaming for free through the generous sponsor support of the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Nashville, access is granted to watch the performance by signing up above.
The digital performance of 72 Steps is made possible through the generous sponsorship of the League of Women Voters of Nashville. 72 Steps was originally commissioned in 2018 by the League of Women Voters and their Perfect 36 Supporters.
