Choreographer René Neville celebrates 50 years in dance with a party called Alt 50 in the Endicott Performing Arts Center on Washington Avenue in Endicott. She brings together her choreographer friends for a program of poetry, music, art, and, of course, dance in a festive program.
“ALT 50 is a collaborative performance of dance, music, poetry, and art celebrating movement and sound in an exploratory vein. It features the work of nine choreographers exploring the themes of Emergence, Gifts, Resonance, Heritage, Chronicles, Unity, Nexus, Fortitude, Vices, Permanence, and Fêtes as they relate to all artists within the context of an artistic life. These themes are danced by 23 dancers with 6 actors providing spoken word pieces between each dance. Original video art projections by René Neville and live music provided by Laurence Elder completes the collaboration between dance, music, poetry, and art.”
