Quotes & Highlights

“…a technical exploration of the dynamic of speed, impact and close interaction…. made me think of hot sunlight and daring athletics.” —Daily News Record

Description

Next Reflex Dance Collective presents Electro Shutdown & The Pea, an experience from within a night club that begins upon your arrival. Entering the theater, you will find the familiar Dance Place stage transformed into the new hot D.C. night club,“The Pea”.

Spectators participate in the action, waiting in line to enter the club, interacting with cocktail waitresses and club goers in the lobby, and then are placed in the thick of the concert scene. In this wild spectacle of a show, NRDC performers represent an array of club goers and give an inside view to various scenarios found in a night club from the funny and absurd to the romantic and frenetic. The evening closes with a live musical performance by Electro Shutdown and an open dance floor.

Next Reflex Dance Collective was the proud recipient of the 2009 Metro DC Dance Awards’ Founders Award for innovation in dance.

Next Reflex Dance Collective is a new modern dance company in the DC Metro area. Founders Erika Schonemann and Roxann Morgan Rowley center the collective around collaboration and providing a venue for more artistic voices in the DC Metro dance community. Collaborating with artists of all disciplines, Next Reflex supports the creation of experimental work and expanding the collective voice of DC dance.
