THE MOUSE RAN UP THE CLOCK

How do TikTok dance challenges translate to the concert dance stage? That's the question we asked ourselves, and this is our response. 

Lighting Design: Lori Honeycutt

Dancers: William Acker, Elaina Alspach, Colby Calhoun, Danielle Georgiou, Kelli Howard

Special Note: This piece was set to premiere at the 2020 Faculty Dance Concert at Eastfield College in Mesquite, TX. The live concert was canceled due to COVID-19. However, the Eastfield College Dance Department created a live-stream event, and the show went on with just the performers and crew in the theatre. It was streamed on Friday, March 13 through Facebook Live and Instagram and reached audiences nationally and internationally.

NIGHT GAME

A Beckettian look at baseball as a series of rituals & blusters. 
Crafted through improvisational sessions with the performers and directed by Danielle Georgiou, NIGHT GAME is inspired by the American dance forms of Jazz and Tap and explores how America's game breathes ambition into the void of youth. 
NIGHT GAME was staged at Sweet Pass Sculpture Park (Dallas, TX) as part of Buxtoof’s performance series entitled “Dugout” loosely based on the Terry Allen text by the same name. This performance was featured during the Bush League exhibition.

It's So Nice To Be Nice

A scene from NICE, which premiered in November 2014 at Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre for the AT&T Performing Arts Center's Elevator Project.

WITHOUT A BODY

“Without A Body” blends contemporary dance with ideas of clowning and sketch comedy. With references to historical moments of musical theatre and performance art, the resulting combination provides a witty movement complement—initially as Laurel and Hardy-esque duet, later as creative visual amplification of the subjects and themes explored in the text.

Music: Black Taffy

Lighting Design: Lori Honeycutt

Dancers: William Acker and Elaina Alspach
