WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Jenny Rocha, artistic director of the Rocha Dance Theater, presents Pistol Pretty, a multi-media production involving dance, live music, costume design and video projection. Rocha combines her feisty styles of vaudeville, burlesque and stomping with her modern repertory to create a fiery blend of dance theater that is both technical and witty. Pistol Pretty is based on Rocha's creative interpretation of how the "The Painted Lady" emerged in society. By using transformative movement vocabularies, costume manipulation, live music and video imagery, Rocha will transcend a cast of uptight proper women into zany, stomping female forces. Past works such as "Proper Thang" and "The CanCan" were catalysts for this production. Eva Yaa Asantewaa wrote "frisky percussive stylings...Lousiana gumbo style stomp" about the two pieces. Gay City News wrote "funny and entertaining" about "Proper Thang" and Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times called it "a hilarious trio for manic tootsies."
