Modern in Motion VI Oct. 16-19


NATCHITOCHES – The NSU Dance Company and the Friends of the Louisiana Sports and History will present Modern in Motion VI at 7 p.m. on Oct. 16, 18 and 19 at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum at 800 Front St. in Natchitoches.


Tickets to the Oct. 16 Gala performance are $50 with a $5 discount for FLASH members. The Gala is sponsored by the Natchitoches Historic District Development Commission with a reception following the performance at Maglieaux’s Riverfront Restaurant. Tickets on Oct. 18 and 19 are $10 and $5 for FLASH members and students.


Brett Alan Garfinkel is the director and choreographer along with Kirstin Riehl and Crystal Lewis. The Tap Repertoire group will perform choreography by Rebecca Morgan.  


“The performance centers around the beauty of the architecture of the museum itself,” said Garfinkel. “There is no through line story it is an abstract contemporary performance that is inspired by the building itself. The movement sometimes works with and against the style of the building. The NSU Dance Company is thrilled to be back at the museum for this performance as this is where it all began in the fall of 2013.”


The cast of Modern in Motion VI is Alexzandra Hattier, Ashley Henry and Abigail Miller of Slidell, Taylor Myers of Simmesport, Tara Lane of Little Rock, Arkansas, Sarah Talbot, Mary Scott Pourciau, Hannah Knoff and Katherine Langlois of Baton Rouge John Jefferson of Shreveport, Brandi Corkern of Covington Haleigh Giorlando-Wall, Dwight Robinette, Mary Strickland and Taylor Young of New Orleans, Alyson Brown of Jennings, Erin Fallis of Pineville, Alphonse Engram of DeRidder and Leyla Fettweis of Brussels, Belgium.
