"A Cripple’s Dance" is a music and dance performance put together by Gabriel Rodreick with help from the Minnesota State Arts Board’s Artist Initiative Grant. 10 years ago Gabriel sustained a C5 Spinal Cord Injury which left him paralyzed from the armpits down. “A Cripple’s Dance” is an expression of his desire to dance, move and reconnect with his body post injury. 

The music will be performed by Gabriel Rodreick (Freaque, Undoers, Treading North), Jack Stanek (Undoers, Treading North), and musicians from the Kremblems Collective, Bailey Cogan (26 BATS!), Karl Remus (Lucid VanGuard), and Warren Thomas Fenzi. 

The dance will be performed by Gabriel Rodreick, Angelique Lele, and the movers of Kelvin Wailey (Leila Awadallah, Emma Marlar, and Laura Osterhaus). 

This groundbreaking performance is a piece that grapples with living with a spinal cord injury, a topic that is rarely touched on by the music and dance community. Through music and dance, the audience will experience an expedition through anger, fear, longing, and eventually arrive in a place of acceptance and contentedness. A place where you can dance without a care in the world.

SEABERG
Seaberg is a hip-hop, jazz punk, and neo-soul band fronted by black genderqueer guitarist, Taylor Seaberg, Paraguayan drummer, Carlos Kelley, and bassist, Joshua Maxwell . Often soulful and punk driven, the group carries a vibrant energy. Under their former name of "People Will Dance," Seaberg's in-studio performance of their song "Vibes" was featured in City Pages' Local Frames and the Local Current blog's Friday Five music video roundups. Seaberg has also performed at an MPR sponsored album release show for Chastity Brown's "Silhouette of Sirens" at The Fitzgerald Theater, a Greenroom Magazine sponsored show for Oshun, as well as Minneapolis Institute of Art's Third Thursday Art + Lit events. 

When not performing with the full band, Taylor can be found performing their solo original music under the same name.

IZELL PYRAMID
Maybe the only thing more beguiling about Izell Pyramid than his stage presence is his indecipherable personality. Below the lavish sleep mask and spools of Auto-Tune is a careful, deliberate songwriter and a socially vigilant observer, a Twin Cities music veteran who’s striking out into anonymity for the sake of his art. 

What we can tell you about Izell Pyramid is that it’s actually a duo—a pair of siblings in their 20s from south Minneapolis. One sings and performs, and the other maneuvers the beats. The rest, for the time being, is hidden from view.
