3 original works set to the last songs of classical & contemporary music artist that explore memory & mortality through dance.
Hi, I'm Meredith Rainey, Artistic Director/ Choreographer of a new contemporary ballet company Carbon Dance Theatre. To launch our inaugural season and Philadelphia debut we will premiere three new works set to the last songs ever written/recorded by celebrated and extremely diverse music artists, including Richard Strauss, Nick Drake, Aaliyah, Franz Schubert and Amy Winehouse.
Donations will go to pay the wonderful dancers, amazing designers and stage crew and of course the fabulous choreographers. We have already had six weeks of rehearsals and workshops to create work and figure out the structure of the evening. Now we are gearing up to perform it at the Performance Garage from October 27 - 30, 2011.
Our wonderful team of Artists:
Choreographers: Meredith Rainey (Former soloist with the Pennsylvania Ballet and Winner of the AWARD Show, 2011), Matthew Neenan (Ballet X, Pennsylvania Ballet), Kate Watson-Wallace (anonymous bodies, 2007 Pew Fellow).
Dancers: Sun-Mi Cho, Felicia Cruz, Daniel Moore, Anna Noble, Alex Ratcliffe-Lee, DuJuan Smart Jr.
