Tony Award nominee Robert La Fosse will perform in Dancing Henry Five, to be presented by Pick Up Performance Co(s) at The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago, October 13-15 at 8pm. The production is directed, choreographed and designed by David Gordon.

This reduction of Shakespeare's Henry V incorporates theatre, narration, scenery and prop manipulation and dance to convey the story of Henry's ascension to the throne of Britain and his defeat of the French at the Battle of Agincourt.

The cast will also feature Valda Setterfield as the narrator, dancer Karen Graham, and five additional dancers.

La Fosse received a Tony nomination for Jerome Robbins' Broadway, and also performed on Broadway in Dancin'. He was principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre for nine years, then principal dancer with New York City Ballet. He is also a choreographer, and author of his autobiography, Nothing to Hide.
