Join us for the world premiere of fast-rising local choreographer Kim Lusk’s first evening-length work. A Dance for Dark Horses is packed with Lusk’s signature “gut-busting parody,” dry humor, and physical virtuosity. With an original score inspired by 90s pop beats, A Dance for Dark Horses tells stories about failure, success, and the power of group magic. This work has been created through Velocity’s Made in Seattle program, designed to boost choreographers like Lusk onto the national stage.
“Lusk is in a sweet spot as a choreographer … developing a movement vocabulary that literally vibrates at the intersection of classicism and pop action, like a slam-dancing sarabande.”—Sandra Kurtz, Seattle Weekly
