RoCo Dance On Stage and "PETER"
Saturday, January 23, 7:30 pm
Sunday, January 24, 4 & 7:30 pm
RoCo Dance is presenting their original dance production entitled “Peter,” a modern twist on the classic story of Peter Pan. Directed by Annie Rosenthal Parr with original music composed by Beth Custer, video design by John Vigran and costume design by Molly DeVries. Choreographic collaborators include acclaimed Bay Area artists such as Christine Cali, Joe Gray, Jeff Wong, Jennifer Meek, Melinda Neal, Tegan Schwab, Kristin Damrow and Kristen Bell.
RoCo’s “Peter” is a surreal fantasy bridging the old world with the new and into the future. Each chapter of the story is stylized though genres of dance by introducing ballet, modern, hip hop, jazz and break dancing. RoCo narrates “Peter” through dynamic movement, video projection, original music score, costumes and unique light design. Performers include selected upper level dancers from RoCo Dance’s teen program. The first half of each evening will open with its own separate showing of “RoCo Dance Onstage,” which showcases dances of all genres and age groups.
