“For this production, I just wanted to play and have fun making dances. In search of a way to describe our experience, I stumbled upon John Milton’s poem L’Allegro that romanticizes the mirth and merriment of movement.” – Veronica Hart, founder & director.
Seized by the Perfect by Audrey Fenske portrays the never-ending pursuit of perfection in art. Rafael Torralvo, a world-class violinist from Brazil, performs the music of Ysaye and Bach.
Landscape #6: steal only time by Katie Baer Schetlick places performers and audience members in the space between yearning and reflecting. Score by local percussionist Sam Cushman.
Shamone by Veronica Hart captures Tripping the Light Fantastic with the sheer joy of movement. You’ll see throwbacks from Michael Jackson, Austin Powers, and Fosse with hints of the Muppets.
A Million Little Pieces, created and performed by Veronica, is a retrospect of her love affair with dance.
Elevator Theory by Veronica Hart and Edwin Roa transform the brief fantasy one might have on a short ride between floors into a magical fusion of Edwin’s partnered dancing and Veronica’s contemporary and ballet backgrounds.
