No Hero Vermont is choreographer Alex Ketley's exploration of what social dance and concert dance means to Vermonters. Join us for this informal screening that captures surprisingly profound and moving exchanges between Ketley and Vermonters through discussions and dances performed for people in their living rooms, social halls, and outdoors. Watch excerpts from the No Hero video project HERE - created in 2012 by traveling extensively throughout rural parts of the American West and talking to strangers about what their relationship was to dance.
