The company is busy preparing for performances in 2024!
We’ll be performing “Bittersweet and Other Dances” at the Cleo Parker Robinson Theater on January 27 at 7:30 and January 28 at 4:00. The program will include the premiere of “Bittersweet”, a dance for seven set to a charming score based on delicate Appalachian folk music. We’ll also be repeating “Disquiet” – which premiered earlier this year. Reconstructions of “Calling”, which premiered in 1997 and “Time Is Gonna Bring Your Spring”, from 2002, will also be on the program. Please mark your calendars! Check back soon to buy your tickets.
On January 20 we will perform excerpts from “Stirring” at the Versatility Dance Festival at the Dairy, in Boulder. T2 produces this wonderful shared performance each year. The variety of work featured provides a great opportunity to see a wide range of local dance.
We will also participate in Body/Speak at Colorado State University- a shared program with many area dance groups. This show is on February 9 and 10, 2024. Our offering will be “The Get-Go”.
In the meantime we are currently providing a dance component to Inside the Orchestra’s Tiny Tots programming.
Inside the Orchestra
Inside the Orchestra (ISO) has added a dance component to Inside the Orchestra’s Tiny Tots and public school programming! ISO reaches thousands of additional public school students each year by enriching their music programming with a dance performance.
Tiny Tots gets children truly “inside the orchestra” by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with our 30+ piece professional orchestra.
Designed for children six and under, Tiny Tots is a 45-minute program that gives young ones the chance to interact with the conductor and the musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Children are encouraged to respond to different elements of the music, from thinking about how music makes them feel to getting on their feet and moving. They are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by various instruments, introduced to musical concepts, emotional understanding of the arts, and artistic expression. The music selection, design, and scripting of Tiny Tots is geared to connect very young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Children are also encouraged to take a closer look at the instruments and ask questions of the musicians after the concert has concluded. Every Tiny Tots event includes guest performers from some of our cultural partner organizations.
