Performance Notes

× Presented by Around the Stage | Modern Dance Company

Synopsis of This is the exploration of all the different ways a person may find themselves independent or dependent, specifically within their daily lives. Company dancer Eve Allen-Garza explains the obsession with caffeine our country has “who consumes 400 million cups of coffee per day” while preparing her own cup of coffee onstage. Dancers Leslie Balzer, Eve Allen-Garza, Ellen Duffy, and Caitlin McCarty reminisce on their dependence to their mothers as they dance in signature mom jeans. Ellen Duffy finds her independence within a struggling relationship with dancer Justin Tanks while building a piece of Ikea furniture through-out the duration of the entire show, the struggle of bills getting paid, getting a job, making your own decisions, dressing your self are all faced through out Around the Stage’s new show, Synopsis of This. About the company: Around the Stage | Modern Dance Company was founded January 2018 by Keely Cobb with eight local dancers and four crew members. The company strives to produce shows that provide professional opportunities for local performers and technical crew members. Reno is largely a growing arts community and there is so much talent that needs to be seen on stage or used backstage. Around the Stage was created to access that talent and collaborate with these artists to create evening length performances that relate to the general public’s daily lives. The choreographic aesthetic of the company intertwines theater and dance elements in a way that is fresh and often humorous. Crafting characters, investigating relationships and assembling narratives that frequently move beyond the fourth wall allow for a connection between audience and performer to bloom.
