In its new offering, Savage Jazz Dance Company pays tribute to The Town. Brought to life and developed in Oakland and containing the same intensity, creativity and diversity of life experiences that only a city like Oakland can provide, Sketches of Oakland paints a portrait of what it is to not only be human but truly be alive in The Town.
A brand-new creation from Founder and Artistic Director, Reginald Ray- Savage, Sketches of Oakland will include new works by composer, Leslie La Barre, performed live by lead musicians solo contemporary pianist Emily Tian, and violinist/violist Justin Ouellet, plus a collaboration with visual artist Kaya Fortune, and the bold signature style of Savage Jazz Dance Company.
Through its performances and school of dance, Savage Jazz Dance Company brings innovative, engaging and dynamic dance to the stage and learning studio. With Sketches of Oakland, together with it young chorus of dance artists, of whom have gone through the year-round Dance Intensive training and are students the Oakland School for the Arts School of Dance (our very close partner in training them), SJDC pushes the boundaries of art to explore themes, people, triumphs, and tragedies of its hometown. Some stories are better told through the dance of the young. Other stories are better told with live music, and visual art rooted in The Town. This production bring all of these elements together along with long time SJDC dance artists, under the artistic direction of Mr. Savage.
