Featuring The Studio Project Ensemble
Hive and Scene Unseen are two of the choreographic works that make up this power-packed concert by Backhausdance, known for its lush, athletic movement vocabulary and strong ensemble aesthetic. The company recently completed a milestone 15th anniversary season that included its first European tour and an engagement at New York City’s internationally renowned Joyce Theater. In this performance, founder and artistic director Jennifer Backhaus, a longtime artistic collaborator on McCallum’s Open Call and The Palm Desert Choreography Festival, has invited local young dance students, who by audition earned coveted spots on the 2019 edition of The Studio Project, to share the stage with the professional dancers. Engaging demonstrations and fun audience participation make this a full experience. Choreography by Jennifer Backhaus and Dwight Rhoden.
