The Allegro Dance Company is thrilled to present their second full-length narrative production, Lost in Perceptions.
Luxuriate in Allegro’s signature theatrical style and diverse movement and artistic vocabulary, while taking an intimate dive into the the culture of our subconscious. Lost in Perceptions scrutinizes humanity and the roles placed upon us, as well as the internal struggles against them--manifesting through a stage full of strong, beautiful women who move with polish and poise, to the androgynous body prone on the stage struggling under the weight of expectation, to the coercive molding of the self into a collective. Will the audience choose the easy road to conformity, or will they hear the faint cries of Resistance in time?
The Allegro Dance Company is an experimental fusion dance collective known for engaging theatricality, heart-pounding choreography, and the seamless merging of cross-genre techniques and inspirations. The brainchild of internationally touring teacher and performer Ashley Lopez and currently directed by Elise Morris, Allegro is ultimately a collaborative effort, drawing company members from a diverse group of local talent. Each dancer brings their own unique artistic flair and dance training to co-create choreographies and full narrative shows exploring the mystery, passion, pain, and ultimate beauty of the human condition.
