Dance Kaleidoscope Announces 40th Season
Indianapolis: Press releaseWith its 2011-12 season, Dance Kaleidoscope will turn 40. Founded in 1972 as part of the Young Audiences program, DK is Indianapolis’ professional contemporary dance company. Reflecting on the number of years DK has been in Indy, artistic director David Hochoy says with a smile, “Life begins at 40!”
The first concert of the season will be The Four Elements (Redux) in October on the IRT Main Stage. This piece premiered in 2005 and quickly became an audience favorite. The powerful section, Earth, will remain in tact. Water, Air and Fire will be reworked by David Hochoy.
Just before the Super Bowl comes to town, DK will offer an energetic party of a concert called Super Soul. Featuring the music of Motown, Super Soul will run for the first two weekends of January on IRT’s Upper Stage.
In March, DK will return to IRT’s Main Stage to present its tribute to William Shakespeare called All the World’s a Stage. The program will include a world premiere of Romeo and Juliet, using Tchaikovsky ‘s soaring music.
Celebrating Indiana’s own Cole Porter, DK will present the full evening audience favorite, COLE! On IRT’s Main Stage.
Tickets and season subscriptions are available at 317.940-6555.
For light fun this summer, see DK’s concert, Summer Musicals/Elvis Sizzle. The first act will be sections from Mad for Musicals, followed by sections from The Elvis Project. The show will run July 7-10 on IRT’s Main Stage.
