From the Music Producer JONBOYONDABEAT, This story is about a young girl who loses her self-esteem after being teased and made fun of for being different. In the end, with a little guidance from a doll who witnesses the events, she learns to love herself no matter what others may say. "Come what may, I am Alie Rose, and I'm here to stay."

…a fragile monolith is a collaborative movement investigation by North Carolina State Arts Council Choreography Fellow, Duane Cyrus. It uses lyricism, speed, and dynamic energies to question perceptions of power in monolithic societal paradigms or constructs––whatever those might be for us. Cyrus uses a creative process called Theatre of Movement, working collaboratively with the class and research assistants Billy James Hawkains and Lauren Kelly to create a tableau that shifts through conceptual environments allowing each viewer to consider the work in their own way.
