Reality TV Inspires Dancers

ARTS NC State presents Cinderbox 2.0, a 75-minute dance theatre piece inspired by the popularity of reality TV, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 24–25 in Jones Auditorium at Meredith College. Order tickets online or call Ticket Central at 515-1100.

Cinderbox 2.0 takes a look at the comedy and anxiety created by our hyper-networked culture and blurs the distinctions between the observer and the observed, what is scripted and what is off-the-cuff. The Chicago Sun-Times calls this fun and engaging work “a visually, kinetically, sonically and intellectually dazzling piece of dance theatre.”

Lucky Plush Productions is a Chicago-based company that devises work with a focus on strong ensembles, evocative choreography, integrated technology and bold content. Led by choreographer Julia Rhoads — one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2010, and the 2013 dance recipient of the Alpert Award in the Arts — the company is known for its witty commentary on contemporary culture.

Don’t miss the pre-show discussion with Rhoads at 7 p.m. in Carswell Concert Hall (just around the corner from the entrance to Jones Auditorium).

This performance is presented in partnership with Meredith College Dance. Stewart Theatre is closed during the renovation of the Talley Student Union.
