Leverage Dance Theater

Nine/Sketch returns for St. Lou Fringe


Leverage is thrilled to be reviving the production Nine/Sketch with Slightly Askew Theater Ensemble (SATE) for Fringe 2014.

Looking for information about UNHINGED, our full-length Fringe show performing Sat at 9:30 and Sunday at 6:30? Click here.

NINE/SKETCH premiered August 2013.

The Ladue News praised Nine/Sketch as “an intriguing study … [instilled] with a taut, suspenseful aura that defines the presentation with a thick cloud of tension.”

KDHX called the performances “raw and powerful … presenting bold theatre that challenges the audience and artfully broaching subjects that are painful and disconcerting to consider.”

Jessica Ruhlin writes of the dancers’ “fluidity, precision, and grace” in her sneak peek from August 2013.

SKETCH: a series of duets exploring fragmentation, time-lapse, and intimacy created by Hannah Fischer. Sketch was commissioned and created specifically for Nine, a play by Jane Shepard.

NINE: Two women held in a life-threatening situation and the mind games they play to keep one another alive. Held in a room and chained apart, their only currency is words, and balance of power is everything when a single word becomes the hanging point between life and death.


There are four chances to catch this show again, thanks to St. Lou Fringe.
