Don’t miss us September 16th, 17th and 18th at The Orange Studio!
Introducing a new “Finger” Paint Chips Sunday family show!
Our guests and the reviewers raved about the music, the dancing and the projections that made Voci Dance: Paint Chips such a success at the 2016 Orlando Fringe. So we’re coming back for three performances: September 16th, 17th and 18th at The Orange Studio (1121 N. Mills Ave., Orlando).
Come see the groovy 1960s-inspired dance-theater production everyone is talking about, this time with DJ Nigel spinning the 1960s vibe with more music as we expand into a warehouse lounge setting, add new colors to the cast – welcome Gold! – and feature special guests. Wine and beer and snacks will be available. Shows are at 8 pm, and the doors open at 7:30 pm for chilling with Nigel and having a drink. Tickets are $20 in advance, available from vocidance.com, and $25 at the door.
Because we love families and children, on Sunday, September 18th, we welcome all ages to the debut of Voci Dance: “Finger” Paint Chips. Come experience this family-friendly afternoon with art activity stations, colorful treats and a special show bursting with cool kid appeal. The show starts at 2 pm, and doors open at 1:30 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets are available from vocidance.com and at the door.
Voci Dance: Paint Chips keys on the voice of Ken Nordine, instantly recognizable to a generation raised on his TV commercial voiceovers, and most memorably showcased on the eclectic word jazz recordings he produced in the 1960s. Nordine’s rhythmic lyrics and hypnotic tone on his 1968 album Colors are the canvas upon which Voci Dance moves In Paint Chips.
“Step back in time with us to a retro world, circa 1966,” invites Artistic Producer Genevieve Bernard. “Look, listen and live the colors – from the sound and vibe of the word jazz to the vintage-inspired costuming to the movement.” Bernard choreographed Nordine’s colors with sensuous contemporary dance movements. “I want the viewer to see the colors come to life through the dancer,” says Bernard. “Nordine’s pieces give the colors a character, and the dancers become the characters.”
Out of Voci’s virtual coloring box comes blue Blue, fierce Purple, conflicted Green, body-conscious Burgundy and a spectrum of other hues performed with delightful theatrical flourish by the experienced cast of Voci dancers: Adrienne Nichols, Lisa Mie, Rokaya Mikhailenko, Katherine Fabian, Larissa Humiston and special guests. Wildly original video projections by Dana Mott add to the kaleidoscope of color.
Strong dancing, a jazzy soundtrack, video projects and humor make this offering from the Orlando troupe a winner.
– Matt Palm, The Orlando Sentinel
Wildly exceeded any expectation. … The show is so well-constructed that it’s hard to single out high points. … The entire experience felt expensively well-thought-out, lovingly perfectionistic.
– Jessica Bryce Young, Orlando Weekly
