The Choreographers' Showcase is one of the longest-running showcases of new and established choreographers in the country. Presented in partnership with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, the showcase has been inspiring dance audiences and building the regional dance community since 1983.
The showcase features voting for the Audience Choice Award. The winner is eligible to participate in NextLOOK, a community incubator program in partnership with Joe's Movement Emporium to support the development of new work by regional artists.
The award-winning production returns, wordlessly re-imagined to sizzling effect! As the irresistible and fiery Carmen draws the soldier Jose into a forbidden romance, a deadly love triangle emerges - with tragic consequences. Synetic co-founder Irina Tsikurishvili reprises the title role in this newly adapted Synetic classic. Recommended for ages 13+ for violence and adult themes.
This fusion of hip-hop and contemporary dance showcases the beauty of the body as it is manipulated and consumed. A couple on and off stage, Sébastien Ramirez is a Frenchman of Spanish descent who grew up steeped in hip-hop culture; Honji Wang is a classically trained German ballerina of Korean descent. In Monchichi, their contrasting backgrounds and aesthetics explosively meet in a performance that confronts identity, love and the enigma of culture.
Honoring the centennial of its première and composer Granados' death– a cloak-and-dagger story of mistaken betrayals spins with the passion of Spanish dance. Inspired by Francisco de Goya's paintings, this opera-ballet is rarely seen in America.
Take your kids to Spain for the holidays! This family interactive opera invites music lovers of all ages to the culture, sights and sounds of Spain, on the wings of beloved song and traditional dances from this special family edition of Goyescas!
Synetic's visionary Founding Artistic Director Paata Tsikurishvili brings his mind-bending, cinematic style to Victor Hugo's gothic, heartbreaking epic of inner beauty and undying loyalty. When the beguiling dancer Esmerelda captures the heart of the deformed bell-ringer Quasimodo, his adoptive father, the priest Frollo, decides he wants her for himself - plunging all of Paris into a spiral of riots, revolution, and murder. This production will not have dialogue. Recommended for ages 13+ for violence.
Using spatial dynamics, movement and physical theatre, text, live sound, theatrical clown and improvisational play, Threshold explores moments of transition, from the simplicity of entering and exiting a space, to the profound transition from innocence to experience.
Happenstance Theater engages the audience by bringing curiosity and delight to the idea of crossing over into unknown spaces: the moving, meeting, leaping, partnering, parting, aging and dying that require us to cross the threshold.
Our human imprint and the memory of our movement linger in spaces well after we have migrated through them. The One-Mile Radius Project explores these imprints and the unique spaces within a one-mile radius of Joe's Movement Emporium. In collaboration with Joe's, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Brentwood Arts Exchange and their workshop participants, Orange Grove Dance will investigate the personal and uniquely traversed spaces of the community. Dance, film and projection will be used to zoom into and magnify the intimate nooks and crevices of seemingly familiar spaces and, in turn, bring those outside spaces inside the walls of Joe's.
The Nutcracker brought to life through art, music and dance by our group of dedicated young dancers, this ballet is sure to thrill audiences of all ages.

My Life Has Been Like Water by Mark Costello
