Rootbound is a unique collaboration between two innovative young morris dance collectives: Maple Morris from Canada and the U.S., and Morris Offspring from the UK. Through inventive and athletic dance compositions and thrilling music and song, we follow a Child's journey through the world of North American morris, guided by her mentor, The Fool.

Rootbound was filmed live at the Berkeley Church in Toronto, Canada on July 19, 2013. After our first collaboration in London (Must Come Down), Maple Morris & Morris Offspring brought Rootbound, a new show celebrating the life of English folk dance in North America, to Boston and Toronto, two of Maple's main home bases. This is the latest product of an ambitious multi-year international exchange which explores and pushes the boundaries of the morris dance tradition, while always looking towards our roots.

Maple, Offspring, and our exciting collaborating artists were thrilled to present this once in a lifetime event, and are glad to have this document of it for you.
