The boundary-breaking company LEVELdance has come up with a cool new way to create their striking theatrical pieces. Instead of starting with the music and choreography as is the custom, co-directors Eddy Ocampo and Joshua Paul Weckesser begin with the lighting design and theatrical elements.

Additional selections from RNDC’s acclaimed repertoire include:
- Evolution of a Dream, a full-company re-envisioning of one of RNDC’s classic and signature works “Reality of a Dreamer,” created by Co-Artistic Director Emerita Sherry Zunker in 1992.

- Train, choreographed by Robert Battle, Artistic Director for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. This commanding and bold work is an abstract ritual in three parts set to a percussive live recording.
