PRODUCTION | FOUR: New Dances by Diane Frank, Aleta Hayes, Alex Ketley, and Ronnie Reddick


November 30, 2017 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Location: Roble Dance Studio - Map Link

FOUR: New Dances by Diane Frank, Aleta Hayes, Alex Ketley, and Ronnie Reddick brings together the original works of TAPS’ four faculty artist-choreographers in a concert of dance, live music, video art, and found objects. Showcasing a range of choreographic styles, movement, and visions, the pieces coalesce into a singular evening of dance that makes the case for movement, each one enacting a premise that originates through the body. 

Frank’s dance, with its cool textures, decor, and deceivingly pedestrian objects, investigates progression, connection, and terrain. Hayes directs and choreographs a collaborative making process with the Chocolate Heads that troubles and reinvents the boundaries of an imagined California. In his multimedia dance work, Ketley explores images from his artistic history juxtaposed against his current ideas regarding the moving body. In the show’s closing piece, Reddick’s hip-hop choreography harnesses and celebrates the powerful theatricality of dance. 

A mélange of styles, techniques, and bases, FOUR manifests the collective imaginings of these four innovative choreographers and their dancers, serving as the ideal kick off for TAPS’ CHIMERA season.
