My Turn: A Claire Underwood Story

April 2018

We’ve all seen what happens when political labels and ego become more important than productivity, progress, and the health of a nation. How do we unite against a common enemy when communication is no longer effective?


It’s dance.

TriptheDark Dance Company is using the story of Claire Underwood from House of Cards to explore communication breakdown in politics. Claire has recently come into power as President of United States, but her early idealism has been corrupted by power. Throughout three acts that include theater, puppetry and dance, My Turn delves into congress’ struggles to defeat Claire and work together despite their fragile egos and misplaced loyalties.
