BACKHAUSDANCE: DECONSTRUCTED

Friday, August 1, 2014, 7:30pm
Saturday, August 2, 2014, 7:30pm

Chapman University, Orange CA 

Deconstructed is an evening performance that takes a look at the process of choreography from the inside out. Artistic Director, Jennifer Backhaus, along with company dancers decode the methods they used to create one of the newest works in the Backhausdance repertory. The work is teased apart, live, onstage, into its most essential elements and then re-formed, allowing the audience a deeper look into the structure and intention of the dance. 

Deconstructed is presented as part of the culmination of the annual Backhausdance Adv/Pro Summer Intensive and the two-week students are invited to perform repertory works they have workshopped over the course of the intensive.

General Admission $15
