LA C&D presents soulful, imaginative dance that takes audience members on a journey of self-discovery. We present at the festival excerpts from two of our dances.
Saturday- The Patchwork Girl of Oz (excerpts)
Colorful costumes, multimedia set, and spectacular dance present a dazzling interactive journey into the Land of Oz – one that ignites imaginations of young and old alike. In this narrated story adapted from L. Frank Baum, we follow characters from the “Wizard of Oz” and introduce new ones – like the exuberant title character the Patchwork Girl.
Sunday- The Tennis Dances (excerpts)
“(The program) ended brilliantly, thanks to Reichlin’s Tennis Dances, which dates back to 1979. In this ten-part suite the tennis court becomes a metaphor, of course, for life’s stage. And life, as Reichlin sees it, is indeed a stage, one crowded with a broad spectrum of attitudes. …Here is a choreographer who arguably picks up the feminist point of view where Isadora Duncan and Ruth St. Denis left off. To observe the universe as it is inhabited by women, she harks back to ancient times and mythic symbols.” DanceMagazine
