We May Never Dance Again® is a series of mini-melodramas about the denial of death and its birth of the end of the world. Told through Raja Feather Kelly and the feath3r theory's signature and surreal style of dance-theatre, an unabashed un-recycling of popular culture, We May Never Dance Again® simmers with gritty physicality and sincere storytelling as it moves through the provocative, political and deeply personal, presenting a dance society that is shockingly isolated and yet surprisingly familiar. Performed live to a score that includes Frank Sinatra, Jamiroquai, Micheal Bublé, Donna Summer, Lady Gaga, and Whitney Houston as the white noise that both soothes and drives you mad.
Ensemble will include Amy Gernux, Alexandria Giroux, Sara Gurevich, John Gutierrez, Rebecca Hite, Kalin Imar, Rachel Pritzlaff, Collin Ranf, Aaron Moses Robin, Coel Rodriguez, Candace Taylor, Benjamin Wolk, and Ashley Yergens.
Technical collaborators include lighting designer Tuce Yasak, sound designer Emily Auciello, video editor Laura Snow, and photographer Kate Enman.
Visual design and direction by Raja Feather Kelly, with choreography and performance by the feath3r theory.
