Ground Zero Dance will present the expansion of choreographer Pam England’s COURT at Dogtown Dance Theatre, Richmond, Virginia, from February 3 to 5.
Set to the Renaissance music of English composer John Dowland, COURT is a classically based work of modern dance theater investigating love, greed, hypocrisy, and power. Originally performed in 2002 by five dancers and four musicians, the evening-length work has been re-staged for 10 dancers and one singer, with live accompaniment. Also, special guest Thadd McQuade of BREAK THEATER will perform I Will Follow It: A Hamlet Play.
Ground Zero Dance is the resident company of Dogtown Dance Theatre, a new home for Richmond’s independent performing artists at 109 W. 15th Street (the former Bainbridge Junior High School gymnasium) in the Manchester neighborhood.
Performances are February 3, 4, 5 at 8:00 p.m., with a 2:00 p.m. matinee on February 5. Tickets are $20 (or $10 for students) and will be available at the door, cash or check only. For more information, call 804.353.9774 or visit www.groundzerodance.org.
