“Dancing Off the Page” – UH Manoa Kennedy Theatre

“Dancing Off the Page” is a dance production combining text with dance…poetry, slam. For me, dancing is experienced like poetry…with the heart rather than the mind. Last night I photographed four of the numbers and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The set is low key with no visible background…just black. The dancers are lit for great visuals…hard to photograph. Ha!

The production is directly by Professor Peggy Gaither Adams, my dear friend who let me get a sneak preview and photograph the dress rehearsal. Guest artists include choreographers Eric Stern from the popular Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern Dance Ensemble, Joe Goode from the Joe Goode Performance Group of San Francisco, and Nelson Hiu, composer, performer and recording artist from Hong Kong.

If you have a chance, please don’t miss it. It’s playing from April 17 – 26 at the Kennedy Theatre.
