Rhapsody in Blue and Other Dances
Saturday, May 15, 8 p.m. & Sunday, May 16, 6 p.m.
Don Powell Theater, San Diego State University
Jean Isaacs is never known for resting on her laurels. Rather, she is constantly moving forward. Still, after digging into her deep repertoire to prepare last year’s 35th Anniversary Retrospective, Isaacs rediscovered some old gems that simply begged for restaging. Isaacs was inspired to once again pull from her many years as an innovative choreographer to create this year’s Spring Show at SDSU.
In May, she will give new life to some of her favorite dances that were only seen once or twice. Highly acclaimed "Easter Oratorio" (2002) and "Hurt and More Hurt" (2002) return to the stage, as does her latest work "When Strangers Meet" which premiered in January at "Cabaret Dances," but begs for an expansive theater.
“Rhapsody in Blue and Other Dances” follows on the heels of a successful sold-out run of “Intimate Cabaret Dances” at Dance Place. Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater is excited to present a fully staged production at San Diego State University’s Don Powell Theater.
“While our dancers and audiences enjoyed the intimacy of the small space at NTC, I am excited to show these works with full theatrical lighting and staging,” explained Isaacs.
