BIG RED DOOR & Other Stories (Springstep)
Urbanity presents six works, four choreographed by director Betsi Graves, modeled as a series of short dance stories. In Big Red Door, doors become symbols for entrances and exits in life, snapshots in time. Graves draws inspiration from Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five, building a post-modern take on time-travel, memories and dreams, births and deaths.

In a second story, Little Blue Dot, Graves is inspired by GPS and Google Maps. Three soloists dive into journeys weighed with human emotion  love, guilt and grief. The work questions whether looking at ourselves aerially alters our travel emotions. In an unusual collaboration, music for Little Blue Dot is composed by award-winning composer Mu-Xuan Lin and performed live by Lin and other musicians.

A third chapter, Green Grass Grows, is an ensemble piece set to the music of Philip Glass. Through sweeping symmetry, Graves asks observers to explore the natural wonder of grass, the ultimate mediator between soil and sun.  In a fourth tale, Little Black Dress, Graves turns to neoclassical movement to tell a story of feminine coming of age through cultural assimilation.

The performance will feature guest works by New York-based choreographer K.K. Apple and Michelle Chassé, resident choreographer for the Musical Theater Department of Boston Conservatory.  Apple's piece, Big White Moon, reflects on the innocent wonder of childhood and the reluctance to grow old and leave youth behind.  Chassé presents Red Smoke Rises, a Fosse-inspired, furtive look at what lies beneath the surface.
