Having just finished up 7 sold out shows in the heart of Philadelphia with the astounding BalletX company, we couldn't be more fulfilled with how Bagabones was brought to life by the remarkable, Adam Hougland. We are so grateful to all who came out, to Christine Cox and Tara Keating, the band Justin Leigh, Kiley Ryan, Jim Stager and David Streim, but most of all to the dancers, Edgar Anido, Chloe Felesina, Francesca Forcella, Gary W. Jeter II, Zachary Kapeluck, Skyler Lubin, Daniel Mayo, Caili Quan, Richard Villaverde, Andrea Yorita. What a company. Please check out anything BalletX does, it is guaranteed to blow your mind.
Check out some reviews of the show, most come with beautiful pics as well.
"Last but not least, the world premiere of “When We’re Alone” is worth the price of admission on its own. Chris Kasper’s the musical centerpiece, and his full band is on stage for the duration" -----PhillyNow.com
"Throughout the set, Kasper and Co. were spot on with the material. Every nuance was brought to reality, especially the lovely deconstruction at the end of “Time To Wonder,” which is captured wonderfully live, and accented so crisply by the performers." ------ TheKey
"The highlight of the program is Hougland’s world premiere, When We Are Alone. Choreographed to music by Philadelphia singer-songwriter Chris Kasper, the piece sees dancers narrate the lyrics and melodies with graceful, powerful and sensual movements accompanied by live music played by Chris and his band." -Phindie.com
"Local musician and band leader Chris Kasper stole the show in When We’re Alone, blending folk, blues and rock. It’s not the sort of sound that leads one to think automatically of pointe shoes, but Hougland choose to juxtapose two vastly different cultural traditions on the same stage." --PhiladelphiaDance.org
"Hougland cites Kasper's music as his initial inspiration. 'His music has this spare quality. It works well with the movement because it's not complicated or dense. He has such a poetic sense in his songwriting.'"
"'When We're Alone,' Hougland's world premiere, was a feast of music and dance." - philly.com
