Firefall Dance Theatre,
Theatre on the Square: Main Stage. Director/choreographer
Stephanie Riner interviewed the eight dancers in this
cast about their dreams and struggles. Excerpts from those interviews form the
basis for this show's sound design and choreography. The result has the feel of
sincere students presenting a class project. The sound design (which also uses
movie-style instrumental music) is over-amped and choppy; the choreography is
often a literal acting-out of what's said on tape and, in places, results in
wobbly traffic on stage. An artist, stage right, painting along with the
performance, is a distraction.
Wednesday, Aug. 25, 6 p.m.; Saturday, Aug.
