HEARTLAND: THE IMMIGRANT EXPERIENCE
LOS ANGELES -- The Nannette Brodie Dance Theatre and the music group Enoch Train will join forces on June 5 at the Ford Ampitheatre to mount HEARTLAND: THE IMMIGRANT EXPERIENCE, which deals with the ways different people and cultures have been sustained through traveling across distances.
Included in the evening will be one of NBDT's signature works, "Emigre," a dance theater work based on the images and stories of refugees, exploring both the challenges immigrants endured and the dreams they sought. The piece is choreographed by Brodie and company, and is set to the music of George Crumb, Philip Glass, Eliot Goldenthasl and others.
NBDT is headed by Nannette Brodie, who choreographed and performed with the LA-based The Moving Company for eight years prior to starting her own company.
Enoch Train, based in Salt Lake City, describes itself as "eight musicians, ninety instruments, hundreds of years of folk hymn heritage" which ranges from African-American Gospel spiritual to authentic Klezmer wedding dance to a jazz interpretation of a traditional melody like "Scotland the Brave" and inspirations from hymns from around the world.
The Ford offers a number of dining options, some of which can be ordered in advance. There is onsite parking at $5 per vehicle.For tickets and information call (323) 461-3673 or click on fordampitheatre.org
