A note from the director regarding intimacy and the use of strong language in Dance Nation: This play includes strong language, moments of characters engaged in self-touch, moments of characters discussing genitalia and bodies in a graphic manner, as well as discussions of rape and suicide. Characters also display moments of getting ready onstage, which may require actors to get dressed or undressed onstage. No full nudity required. The degree of undress will be determined by actor comfort.
