The Metallic Series

When: Fri., Feb. 15, 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 16 2013

Karl Rogers, Artistic Director of Red Dirt Dance shares The Metallic Series, an evening of dance centered around metallic objects: golden army men, silver pumps, bronzed tighty-whities, nickels and glittering handbag latches. While the dances range between abstract meditations of beauty to a depiction of unrequited love, each work delves into a unique theatrical world. Rogers crafts quirky movement that highlights the virtuosity of the body while calling attention to the theatricality of the everyday. The Metallic Series invites the audience to consider their own perception of the human experience with dances rooted in the contemporary. Tickets available at
