Roots Above Ground

Roots Above Ground, Marc’s final work for AXIS as Artistic Director, explores the multiple meanings of home as it peels back the layers to uncover the human need for belonging. The signature dance piece delves deep into Marc’s own emotional journey as an immigrant, a disabled gay man, and a dancer–always moving to follow his ambition while longing to belong.
