Dance Kaleidoscope: The Body Electric

Dance Kaleidoscope takes to the main stage at the Indiana Repertory Theater, 140 West Washington Street, Indianapolis, 19-22 May for "The Body Electric", a celebration of dance and life. The performance features two audience favorites and a world premiere, as well as live music from jazz violinist Cathy Morris.

Electric Counterpoint (world premiere) - set to a jazz guitar score by Steve Reich, David Hochoy translates the word "counterpoint" into physical planes of contrasting movement. Featuring duets for George Salinas/Zach Young, Mariel Greenlee/Caitlin Swihart, and Jillian Godwin/Tim June.

In the Moog (2008) - Prepare to have your funny bone tickled! It's the intricately structured music of Bach, but capriciously played on the famous Moog synthesizer.

Skin Walkers (1999) - This folklore fantasy weaves a tale about beings that can shift between human and animal forms. The Celtic score is composed by Indianapolis' own T.H. Gillespie and L.E. McCullough and played by the incomparable Cathy Morris.
