Kidz Danz Kompany presents “1968” at the San Diego Performing Arts Center (4579 Mission Gorge Place, San Diego, CA, 92120) on November 11th-12th, 2016 @ 7pm.
Featuring the diverse and multi-cultural Kidz Danz Kompany, this concert reflects on the year 1968 and how it in many ways parallels 2016. Presented will be new works titled "Mama Said", an homage to the dedication of single motherhood and its struggles, and "KDK/1968/2016", the definitive work of the evening. Both works are choreographed by Artistic Director Spencer John Powell. These works incorporate music from 1968 and 2016 with some song selections from years in between that complement each work. With costuming by Debbie Sloan of Fusionglass Company, her unique and Avant-garde designs provide a modern visual to the works.
Also included in the production will be new works choreographed by Ramon Montes, and new Visionary Dance Theatre dancers Tanya Lewis and James LaRose. They will have you tapping your feet to some of the greatest hits of 1968. This show will include guest performances by local performing artists such as Rebekah Ensley and Lenelle Wylie as well Visionary Youth Theatre. Visionary Dance Theatre will also premiere a new work titled “Black”. Additionally, Alessandra Eck of Fit4Drums (www.Fit4DrumsUSA.com) will do a guest performance piece.
Bring your family and friends down to enjoy this fun, multi-faceted, and reflective production. Come down and see why 1968 was the year the changed the world.
