Travis Wall’s SHAPING SOUND, After the Curtain

Saturday, February 10, 8 p.m.

Tickets are $47.75 (inclusive of fees)
Through his Emmy Award winning work on "So You Think You Can Dance", Travis Wall has established himself as one of America's favorite choreographers. His artistic direction of SHAPING SOUND has already produced one spell-binding show in Dance Reimagined, which has captivated audiences all across North America. After The Curtain is the second show for the eclectic dance company, and tells the story of a man fighting to find his creative voice after the death of his one true love. After The Curtain debuted in March of this year to fantastic reviews. TheaterJones in Dallas said, “It is overwhelmingly beautiful,” and The Los Angeles Times described it as “…a sinuous blend of athleticism, artistry and storytelling; sexy, soapy and spectacular.”

TRAVIS WALL will dance the part of protagonist Vincent, and will be joined on stage by LEX ISHIMOTO, this year’s winner of FOX television’s So You Think You Can Dance. Lex returns to After The Curtain to perform the part of Jude, Vincent’s destructive alter-ego. Travis and Lex received great acclaim when they danced a combative number from After The Curtain on the So You Think You Can Dance season finale.

GABY DIAZ, the Season Twelve SYTYCD winner returns to SHAPING SOUND. Always a fan favorite, Gaby was Lex Ishimoto’s dance partner this year on the show. She will play Ellenore, Vincent’s one-time love who continues to support him through his travails.

Joining the company is TAYLOR SIEVE, who placed third this year on SYTYCD. Taylor will dance the part of Charlotte, Vincent’s protective sister.

SHAPING SOUND founding partner NICK LAZZARNI will dance the part of Leo, Vincent’s brother and sometimes tormentor. Nick is the first-ever, Season One SYTYCD winner.

They will be joined by BARTON COWPERTHWAITE who dances the role of Sebastian, the ill-fated lover, MICHAEL KEEFE (Clyde), JAY JAY DIXONBEY (Edwin) and RILEY KURILKO (Swing).

Rounding out the company are longtime SHAPING SOUND alumni and favorites CHANTEL AGUIRRE (Lily), CHANNING COOKE (Associate Choreographer and Swing), RORY FREEMAN (Luther), KATE HARPOOTLIAN (Rose), and Toronto native LINDSAY LEUSCHNER (Vera).
