Dance at BRICstudio
Thursday & Saturday
April 24 and 26, 8:00pm
This dazzling ensemble of young hoofers led by Andrew Nemr takes a high-energy and high-concept crack at “Gershwin Piano Prelude No. 1,” re-envisioning an a cappella arrangement of the composition with a dancer assuming each vocal role and translating the parts into visually dynamic and percussive movement. CPD will perform accompanied by the original prelude, playfully creating a musical game that brings Gershwin’s melodies to life in a whole new way.
Thursday & Saturday
May 1 and 3, 8:00pm
The new work from this Brooklyn-based dance company, known for pushing the limits of dance and the female form by incorporating theater, music, acrobatics, wrestling, trapeze, and contact improv, is a collaboration with singer-songwriter Toshi Reagon. The Paradise Project is about neighborhoods and examines the delicate balance of harmony, revolution, separatism, community, and integration. LAVA’s distinctive approach is sure to create a uniquely intimate and personal performance. Directed by Sarah East Johnson. Music Direction by Toshi Reagon.
