Kaleidoscope Dance Company In Concert
KALEIDOSCOPE DANCE COMPANY has been entertaining and educating audiences throughout the Puget Sound and beyond for 37 years. This stellar modern dance company of young people is internationally renowned for performances that are
Meaningful & Mesmerizing, Creative & Captivating, Powerful & Playful.

Kaleidoscope in Concert celebrates and supports local and national creative talent by presenting the diverse work of nine choreographers; Erin Crall, Joshua Crouch, Morgan Houghton, Amy J Lambert, Ella Murphy, Rochelle Rapaszky, Vincent Thomas, Dani Tirrell, Karl Watson, as well as Kaleidoscope dancers.

As art reflects life, the work created for this concert is inspired by current events and the world we are living in. Through the young artists of Kaleidoscope, our choreographers explore themes of inclusion/exclusion, survival, equity, representation, community, empowerment, and hope. Performing with truthfulness and authenticity, Kaleidoscope in Concert unites, uplifts, and provides a space for our young people to be heard and seen.  

As Seattle choreographer and dancer Erin Crall began the creative process of working with Kaleidoscope she wanted to give the dancers opportunities to shine in small groups while invoking the idea of a community within the dance. In A Clearing evolved to become an exploration of circles - moving in circles, creating circles, encircling each other.  

The somber yet uplifting music of Max Richter underscores re ba // hope by Joshua Crouch. This moving and powerful dance looks at the difficulties youth face as they navigate the inner landscape of turbulent emotions as they struggle towards the agency of hope in a world that can seem to work against it. This is Joshua's second piece for Kaleidoscope.

We: The Pack is a collaboration of movement artists. The children are the creators, with former Pilobolus dancer Morgan Houghton and his wife Jessie Houghton acting as conductors in refining the material. Through movement exercises and other creative stimuli the Houghtons empowered the dancers to discover and develop the themes that became We: The Pack.

Fresh off her critically acclaimed evening-length production, Young Manic / I Wanted To Be On Broadway, Amy J Lambert's Easy Does It examines the appearance of effort, or seemingly little effort, in uniformity. The dance explores how a tight and strict structure has a duality of intense work and support in ensemble and the ability to be both comforting and controlling.

Choreographed by Kaleidoscope graduate Ella Murphy to Andra Day's empowerment anthem Rise Up, Reaching Out explores moments of struggle, hope, and determination in the hope that this dance will inspire people to seek positive solutions to the challenges humanity faces.

Set to the evocative, delicate piano music of Yann Tiersen, Rochelle Rapaszky, in collaboration with the dancers, looks at society's value of youth experience. As youth are often the least heard and seen by many people, Elephants in the Attic encourages us to remember how it felt (feels) to be unseen, unheard, and dismissed.

Reminiscin' Marvin is an excerpt from Whats Going On - Life, Love, & Social Justice by choreographer Vincent Thomas, re-visioned for the Kaleidoscope young men. The work is a deep reflection of the world we live in currently, as we are reminded of the past. Set to the music of Marvin Gaye and the powerful poetry of Michael Elijah Nicholson | BlackHeart, the audience is challenged to reflect, What has changed? What is the same? What is better? What is going on? There is much power and many solutions in the hearts and minds of our young people.

Seattle dance artist, performer, choreographer, and dance educator Dani Tirrell's We Are Here! is a visceral and powerful piece directly inspired by the strong voices of youth speaking out against gun violence in our schools; they are courage; they have insight, and they love this country.

A Dream of Water by Karl Watson of Whim Whim is set to the music of Arcade Fire collaborators Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld. A Dream of Water is a brief reflection on the world we know, the world we want, and the world we leave for others.

"World is other and other, world is here and there...
A species becomes rich by seeing things as wrong
And patching them, to which I am proud that I
belong." Plurality by Louis Macneice

Cortical Connections was choreographed by the dancers under the direction of Kaleidoscope Director Anna Mansbridge. Based on the BrainDance, a body-mind movement and integration sequence, the dancers embody Breath, Tactile, Core-Distal, Head-Tail, Upper-Lower, Body-Side, Cross-Lateral, and Vestibular movement patterns in this full company piece for 37 dancers.

Kaleidoscopes unique blend of talent, enthusiasm, and soul delights and captivates audiences of all ages. Kaleidoscope in Concert celebrates the joy of dance with an exceptional balance of youth and professionalism. Kaleidoscope Dance Company is made up of young people ages 8-17.
