Continuing their partnership with the historic Texas Theatre, Dallas Neo-Classical Ballet is pairing up with Emmy-award winning producer Dutch Rall and his band, Nocturne Blue, for this one-night-only performance in the heart of Oak Cliff. The work will explore changing perceptions as they relate to time and perspective through the use of repeating forms and phrases. This will be portrayed not only through new choreography by Danielle Georgiou (Director of the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group) and Emilie Skinner (DNCB Artistic Director), but also through projections created by Dutch Rall that will play in tandem with the performance.
Nocturne Blue features German composer Markus Reuter (Crimson ProjeKCt) utilizing live looping techniques with an 8 string guitar of his own design and visuals by Dutch Rall. The performance will be filmed for the upcoming web series Bishop Arts Live. A 35mm screening of Tarkovsky's Solaris will follow the performance.
SOLARIS: drama, mystery, sci-fi. 1972. A psychologist is sent to a station orbiting a distant planet in order to discover what has caused the crew to go insane. Ranked as one of the top 100 films of world cinema and known as one of Tarkovsky’s masterpieces.
