Now in its fourth year, the Rhythmically Speaking production has become an anticipated annual staple of the Twin Cities dance scene, bringing the community a taste of the area's best jazz and rhythm-driven choregoraphers. Rhythmically Speaking 2012 employs a key element of both music and dance - improvisation - as a catalyst to bring together the individual creative works in the show.
The production will feature voice-over vignettes of choreographers discussing how they utilize improvisation within their creation processes, giving viewers a peek into how they work. From Hip Hop to 60's-influenced jazz to Afro-funk, the 2012 choreographers each bring their own unique style-standpoint on how improvisation can inform the creation of dance.
