Upcoming: A Play And A Dance
Christopher Caines Dance Company
As director and designer (of lights, set, and sound), and in collaboration with fight director Galway McCullough (CombatInc.com), I am creating a highly physical, intensely choreographed production, featuring projections design by Katherine Hammond (projection designer for McCarthy's Pride RiverCrossing, winner of the 2012 festival's prizes for Best Ensemble and Best Play), and music adapted from by L.A.-based singer-songwriter Ethan Gold's 2011 release Songs from a Toxic Apartment. The extraordinary cast includes Joshua David Bishop, Justin Garascia, Andrew Gelles, Julia Hochner, Jeff Ronan, Spencer Scott, Seth Shirley, Chantal Thomson, and Joshua Warr.
NEXT, THE DANCE: I am excited to tell you that I will be performing a new duet created in collaboration with champion Irish step dancer (and member of Graham II) Timothy Kochka during a one-week residency at The Yard. This work will fulfill a longtime dream of mine, to bring together Scots Gaelic mouth music (unaccompanied songs for dancing, arranged and sung by myself) and Irish traditional step dance. More details to follow in my next newsletter.
