Two companies are making return engagements in the 2018-19 season of the Elevator Project, a program that gives smaller and emerging arts groups a stage at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
Dark Circles Contemporary Dance and Cry Havoc Theater Company are joining six other performing arts companies for the project's fourth season, which runs October 2018 to July 2019. In addition to a world-class stage, these groups get to utilize ATTPAC's operations and marketing teams, ticketing systems, and mentoring support.
"The Elevator Project has become a passion for us here at the AT&T Performing Arts Center," says interim president and CEO Debbie Storey. "It lets us discover and partner with some of the new and emerging talent in Dallas, and provide them with meaningful resources and a platform in the Arts District. It is an impactful collaboration on a new level."
Cry Havoc Theater Company closes out the season with Sex Ed in Hamon Hall. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, conversations about sexual impropriety are front and center in our collective consciousness. Yet we seem to have collective amnesia when it comes to our own teenage years and the lack of honest, accurate information we received about our bodies. This devised work discusses the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees, and how "the talk" has become so politically divisive in our culture. It runs July 3-14, 2019.
