DARK CHAPTERS is an evening of contemporary dance featuring the VON HOWARD PROJECT, under the direction of Christian von Howard.
This evening-length performance showcases a collection of Mr. von Howard's work along with Guest Choreographer Elizabeth Gillaspy and an original score by Dance Composer Marc S. Langelier.
DARK CHAPTERS is an assemblage of five movement stories - explorations of the human experience conceived by choreographer and Artistic Director Christian von Howard. This evening-length program of collected works from the company's repertory reflects on themes ranging from the historical imagining of von Howard's ancestry during the Victorian Age to present-day personal and physically driving interpersonal relationships. DARK CHAPTERS is inspired by the emotional and temporal sensations of the mind and body; its passions and appetites.
The performances feature an impeccable ensemble of performing talent from the VON HOWARD PROJECT's dynamic cast of New York dance artists, which includes company member Ellenore Scott, Season 6 finalist from So You Think You Can Dance, as well as the beautiful skill and grace of current and former dancers from Ailey II.
