Dance Dance Revolution

“I’m really fascinated with body language and a basic level of movement,” explains Chris Harris, the artistic director and choreographer for Louder Than Words Dancetheatre. “Understanding movements that the general public do, and trying to take body language and make that larger and more expressive through dance.”

That fascination will be threaded throughout tonight’s Louder Than Words performance, Stand Up and DANCE! “A lot of the pieces are premieres,” notes Harris. “They were created specifically for this particular show. They basically are little chunks, little different types of choreography, and we combine them and put them together using vignettes, making an entire evening of dance instead of a piece-by-piece structure.”

Catch the body language in action at 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow night at the Byron Theatre in the University of Denver’s Newman Center, 2344 East Iliff Avenue; tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Call 303-871-7720 or visit www.louderthanwordsdance.com for information.
Sat., May 31, 8 p.m.; June 6-7, 8 p.m., 2008
