Inspired by the Age of Enlightenment, Random Dance's multi-sensory, multimedia work FAR features 10 incredible dancers in a project that confronts the distortions, sensuality and feeling of the 18th century -- all set against a cutting-edging computerized pin board comprised of 3,200 LED lights. At once physical and immediate yet intensely cerebral, FAR features a haunting original score by Ben Frost, a critically acclaimed Australian composer known for his post-classical electronic music. The show is created by award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor, hailed for his innovative approach to new technology and fast, articulate choreographic style. Learn More

Aysha Upchurch: Life, Rhythm, Move Project
Part of the Dance Place Hip Hop Festival
Retrofuturistic _is a play on time travel and science fiction, all while examining the theme of “men are from Mars and women are from Venus.” It is has all the fun, entertaining appeal of hip hop dance, but also raises some questions about what we are doing to our planet, environmentally and socially. The performance will feature students from the Dance Place Fall Hip Hop Repertory Class.

In this performance, the ensemble will present new works by Upchurch and guest choreographers.
