Dance Alloy season includes full-evening programs

| Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Dance Alloy Theater's 2007-08 season will feature two full-evening programs, a new collaboration with the August Wilson Center for African American Culture, continuation of its Behind the Curtain series at its studios in Friendship, and touring.

"A Different Drummer," Dec. 7-10 at the Kelly Strayhorn Theater in East Liberty, takes its title from choreographer Marina Harris' thorough reworking of her 2005 "Blue Quartet." The program also will include David Parker's "Heard As Well As Seen" with world drumming provided by students from Dilworth Traditional Academy in Highland Park, and "Duet" created by the group Pilobolus.

"Feed Your Head Cafe," by artistic director Beth Corning, will be presented over three weekends, March 28-April 13 at the New Hazlett Theater on the North Side. Corning's surreal new piece explores the idea of how the heroine of "Alice in Wonderland" might have developed by middle age.

Choreographer Nora Chipamauire, co-artistic director of Urban Bush Women, will be in residency with Dance Alloy Theater, Oct. 7-12, in a new collaboration with the August Wilson Center. She'll give open community dance classes and lectures, and a solo performance at the Hazlett Theater on Oct. 12 for which ticket information is yet to be announced.

The Behind the Curtain series, a wine-and-cheese studio showing of works in progress, will present Marina Harris on Oct. 16 and David Parker on Nov.16.

The company will give tour performances in Erie, Elon, N.C., and Columbus, Athens and Newark, Ohio, September through March.

Tickets for "A Different Drummer" and "Feed Your Head Cafe" are $15 to $20; $13 to $18 if purchased in advance.

Admission to Behind the Curtain events is $5.
