Louise Reichlin & Dancers/ LA Choreographers & Dancers presents The Patchwork Girl of Oz
Celebrating 40 years of presenting soulful, imaginative dance that takes audience members on their own journey of self-discovery, Louise Reichlin & Dancers/ Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers presents an inspiring weekend filled with dance and multimedia on Saturday and Sunday, October 19 & 20. The 2:00 p.m. performances feature the family-friendly award-winning dance/multimedia narrated production of The Patchwork Girl of Oz. More on www.LAChoreographersAndDancers.org.

In this adapted narrated story, the dance follows characters from the "Wizard of Oz" and introduce new ones  like the exuberant title character the Patchwork Girl. Another new character, Ogo, a sheltered youngster, sees his Uncle turned into a marble rock, and must make friends and work with others to bring him to life again. This production is appropriate for all ages from tiny ones to discriminating grandparents. Although known as stories for the young, L. Frank Baum was way ahead of his time, with superstrong female characters, diversity as part of his storyline, and advanced technology - he has Glinda, Sorcerous of the South, invent wireless technology at the beginning of the story- and this was in 1913!

Louise Reichlin & Dancers, non-profit name - Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers, has created over 100 works reviewed as "wildly theatrical & fun" and "wonderfully spirited with a zest for life".  Founded by Reichlin in 1979, Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers (LA C&D) creates and presents innovative dance works with imagination, feelings, and communication being the inspiration for every piece. Whether presenting a concert performance or enriching the lives of LA area students through arts education, we believe that our work sparks imagination, creativity, self-discovery, and empowers our diverse audience members to expand their understanding of life.

Two companies, Louise Reichlin & Dancers (modern) and Zapped Taps™/ Alfred Desio (tap) made up LA C&D until Desio's death in 2007. Acknowledged as multi-cultural, we strive to reflect the diversity of the city in our dancers, board and staff.

The Patchwork Girl of Oz has played to sold out houses in 7 states and returns to Los Angeles where it all began.
