Description:

With his rollicking blend of hip hop and contemporary dance vigorously steeped in parody, Doug Elkins’ 20-plus-year career has seen wild success. “One of the most musical, witty and inventive choreographers of his generation” (New York Times), Elkins has a knack for lighting the fire of joy in his audiences. Included in the program is Mo(or)town/Redux, a take on Shakespeare’s Othello (and José Limón’s seminal The Moor’s Pavane) set to an all-Motown score featuring, among others, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Amy Winehouse. In addition, Elkins will premiere Hapless Bizarre, a new work exploring intersections of physical comedy, choreography, flirtation and romance in silent film.
