doug elkins choreography, etc.

March 6 – 8, 2014  ·  Zellerbach Theatre
Runtime: 85 minutes

With his rollicking blend of hip hop and contemporary dance vigorously steeped in parody, Doug Elkins’ 20-plus-year career has seen wild success. “One of the most musical, witty and inventive choreographers of his generation” (New York Times), Elkins has a knack for lighting the fire of joy in his audiences. Included in the program is Mo(or)town/Redux, a take on Shakespeare’s Othello (and José Limón’s seminal The Moor’s Pavane) set to a score of Motown favorites Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, eclectic songstress Amy Winehouse and more. In addition, Elkins will premiere Hapless Bizarre, a new work exploring intersections of physical comedy, choreography, flirtation and romance in silent film.
