November 14 – 17
Directed & Choreographed by Angela Harriell
Additional Choreography by Nobuya Nagahama
The people who brought you Nutcracker: Rated R and SEVERED: The Many Loves of Frankenstein’s Monster present the action-packed story of a seedy underworld where “The Scent” is the opiate of choice, cheerleader gang The Tough Cookies terrorizes the streets, corrupt cops are in the hip pocket of nightlife kingpin Jorogumo and her devious teen girlfriend, and one man and his woman are driven to extremes just to survive. Drugs! Desire! Death!
Get drawn into our world from the minute the curtains open. Originally mounted in 2012, Grindhouse is back, bigger and badder than ever! The ballet and contemporary infused choreography of underground favorite Angela Harriell, combined with the pop and lock b-boy style of street dancer Nobuya Nagahama, will have you on the edge of your seat!
