Rabbit Dance

 

Rabbit Dance is a one act play, commissioned by Ohio Northern University for their Ninth Annual International Play Festival.  It premiered in April 2011, at the Freed Center, on the Ohio Northern campus in Ada, Ohio.  The play explores issues of treaty rights, stereotypes, and generational domestic violence in a single encounter two Haudenosaunee beadworkers, at their Niagara Falls State Park vendors tables have, with two white teenagers from the city of Niagara Falls, just before Memorial Day weekend.  Rabbit Dance was produced by Nils Riess, directed by Steve Elm, with dramaturgy by Joan Robbins.  The cast consisted of Actors Equity performers Monique Mojica and Kateri Walker, and two student actors from the ONU theater program, Hayley Reynolds and Drew Knigga.
