Clare Cook Dance Theater

The lives of three present-day modern dancers intersect and collide with those of a coterie of 1920s Ziegfeld Follies-era chorus girls in this original dance-theater piece. From learning those tricky tap steps as a child to leaving her small town to move to the Big Apple, hustling from job to job, some things have not changed much for a girl trying to 'make it' as a performer. Contemporary dance, original song, narrative, and video projection combine to reveal how much past is in our present.
