Dance Box Theater/Laura Schandelmeier & Stephen Clapp
Dance Box Theater
Dance Box Theater, recipients of the 2010 Metro DC Dance Founder’s Award for Innovation, return to the Dance Place stage with a new work We Are Here, a collaboration between Co-Artistic Directors Stephen Clapp and Laura Schandelmeier. March 31st and April 1st. In the Fest Theatre Review of the company’s Edinburgh Festival debut the dancers of this company are described as precise, inventive, and remarkably in tune with each other.
A contemplation on the macrocosm of our reality reflected through the microcosm of our experience, We Are Here unveils the mysteries revealed through consistent and rigorous kinesthetic investigation, reflection and practice.
We Are Here weaves an abstract motion narrative in which four dancers are caught inside an environment with constantly shifting perspectives. Known for their innovation, virtuosity, and detailed choreography, Dance Box Theater’s Artistic Directors, Stephen Clapp and Laura Schandelmeier present a surreal journey filled with shadows, light, and snow in their seventh, original, full-evening production.
Featuring a new music score by Stephen Clapp, We Are Here is performed by Stephen Clapp and Laura Schandelmeier with guest dance artists Heather Doyle and Wakili McNeill, lighting design by Ben Levine, and costumes by Renate Maile-Moskowitz.
