About this show

An eccentric retrospective celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Jody Oberfelder Dance Projects, this fairy tale-like journey careens from the epic to mundane and from operatic to ordinary with acrobatic physicality, emphasizing the connections and stories of our lives. Heads or Tales will not be a superhero blockbuster or a romantic comedy. However, the work, augmented with cameo appearances from an all-star cast of former company dancers, is an amalgam of the past and present weaving together a philosophical narrative. Dances to be re-visited include excerpts from Oberfelder's raucous Head First, a crash helmet dance, and the tender Rock Me Mama danced by new mothers and their babies, along with original cast members and their now-teenage children. Also featured are the hilarious and perky X-Cheerleaders, the fantastical The Story Thus Far (based on Grimm Fairy Tales), and clips of Dido & Aeneas. Thursday's show will be a gala performance to benefit Jody Oberfelder Dance Projects.
