(video from University of Texas Theatre and Dance)
Under the artistic direction of Leah Cox and Joel Valentín-Martínez with producing artistic director Erica Gionfriddo, Dance Repertory Theatre returns to the stage for an in-person celebration of dance, togetherness and connection, presenting poignant new works of choreography. Fall For Dance will feature two unique versions of programming that seek to challenge and expand our understanding of the power of dance to change and transform, as well as an exploration of our collective transition through the COVID-19 pandemic and how we can take lessons learned to the other side of this ongoing metamorphosis.
Runtime is approximately 70 minutes with one intermission. Contains mature content, imagery and themes.
*Concert II (November 18-21, 2021) contains simulated nudity and strobe effects/binaural beats. Suitable for ages 17+.
Please note that programming for Fall For Dance is being presented as two different concerts and programming varies between November 11-14 and November 18-21. An outline of pieces performed for each concert is detailed below.
