Dallas Black Dance Theatre's Director's Choice

Wyly Theatre - AT&T Performing Arts Center

Social media takes a role in the development of a world premiere by Dallas Black Dance Theatre's (DBDT) new Artistic Director Bridget L. Moore during the Director's Choice series. Other works in this series depict conquering emotional ghosts and enduring emotional storms.

Moore is expanding the duet "Uncharted Territory" that received rave reviews last season, into the full company work "Uncharted Territory: Body of Evidence."

"I am using social media to gain cultural perspectives and will document how it informs my choreographic choices. I want to use social media because it is accessible and I think it is a great tool to share experiences," says Bridget L. Moore.

Choreographer Andy Noble describes his work "Tower" as an athletic, contemporary, rain dance, complete with 22 dancers on stage formulating a brewing storm. The musical backdrop is "Weather One" by Michael Gordon. Noble, the co-artistic director of NobleMotion Dance, is from Houston and survived Hurricane Harvey.

Juel D. Lane both choreographed "How to Kill a Ghost" and wrote the lyrics to original music by Quentin EQ Johnson. The work tackles the haunting effects of holding onto something that no longer exists. The dance is a mixture of modern, African, Hip Hop and Jazz styles set to R&B and New Age music.

In "Monophonic," Rebecca Troyak creates a duet reflecting the relationship between dance partners. The contemporary dance is a high cardio work set to Opera music. Troyak is a Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts alum.
