Spectrum Dance Theater breaks in the new minimalist performance space at the Tacoma Armory with Donald Byrd's modern masterwork Love. Set to Benjamin Britten's Cello Suites, the piece explores the emotional complexities of intimate relationships through the expressive lifts and leaps of contemporary dance. Spectrum's artistic director and choreographer Donald Byrd, a Tony nominee for The Color Purple, is a true legend of modern dance who's created more than 80 works, including pieces for such prestigious organizations as the Alvin Ailey Company and The Joffrey Ballet. CityArts Magazine raves about a prior performance of Love, "Every dancer in the company was spellbinding -- full of elegance and technique and deep emotional response." Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
The first independently produced full-length theater show by NANDA!!
Teeming with juggling, acrobatics and martial arts, The Jacket combines comedy and irreverent pop-culture references for an entirely original performance.
The show features a cutting edge cinematic soundtrack, as well as tightly integrated video projections and digital animations—all the while borrowing from circus, vaudeville, and classic western theater traditions.
This panoply of stylistic influences is propelled by an epic story, replete with ancient mystics, kung-faux ninjas, robots, lasers, and a myriad of other action movie oddities.
The result is not only a show that is truly unique, but one that strongly resonates with all of the mainstream entertainment phenomena that it deftly parodies.
