Coker College welcome’s the award-winning choreographer and director Doug Varone and Dancers to campus on November 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Watson Theater. Varone and Dancers will bring to the Watson stage charismatic, lyrical and lush movement. The program features pieces from Varone’s newest work, Chapters from a Broken Novel set to music by award-winning composer David Van Tieghem (Broadway’s Doubt, Frozen, etc.).
Varone takes inspiration from evocative phrases and descriptive language that he has collected in an ongoing journal of photos, illustrations and conversations to form interconnected short stories that depict human nature at its most naked and vulnerable, expressive and poignant. The two pieces that will be shown are called Lux, an energetic work that embodies Varone’s signature flowing movement style set to Philip Glass’ The Light and Castles, featuring music by Sergei Prokofiev.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children, seniors and Coker faculty and staff. Admission for Coker students is free.
