Le Spectacle de Merde

Le Spectacle De Merde (“Welcome to our Sh*t Show”)

Megan Flynn & Teresa VanDenend Sorge

Troy, NY & Cincinnati, OH


Aging. Adulting. Good luck trying not to slip in it!

Instead of “break a leg,” dancers say “Merde!” An evening of experimental, devised dance works that weave together stories of aging, adulting, grieving and growing, while navigating the messiest stages of life alongside our chosen family. Created by Megan Flynn & Teresa VanDenend Sorge, choreographers of Mothering & Mourning (Cincy Fringe 2023).
