1200 After The Curtain. Songs From The Shaping Sound Production

 Son Lux — After The Curtain: Songs From The Shaping Sound Production (June 20, 2017) Son Lux — After The Curtain: Songs From The Shaping Sound Production (June 20, 2017)★↔★   Jedná se o společnost, která se označuje jako „vizuální hudebníci“ a říká, že jejich tanec dává tvar a formu celkovému soundu. Hudba od Son Lux nabízí pro tyto představy ideální zázemí. V závěrečné části tance Wall hudba jakoby se z něj vylévala a zobrazovala zranitelnost postav, čelících devastaci a žalu.
★↔★   This is a company that describe themselves as “visual musicians” and says their dance gives shape and form to sound. The music by Son Lux provides the perfect background to this. In the final pieces, Wall dances as if the music is pouring out of him, displaying vulnerability as his character faces devastation and heartbreak.

★↔★   We all know Travis Wall from SYTYCD with his dynamic movement and control. He became a household name on the show and his choreography is now known throughout the world.
★↔★   With the creation of his company Shaping Sound with his friends and co~founders/co~choreographers Nick Lazzarini and Teddy Forance, Travis now had the ability to create an entire show. Shaping Sound Dance Company first debuted its full~length production “That’s Where I’ll Be Waiting” in 2013. Since then they have been touring throughout the country and selling out theatres normally used for big Broadway tours.
★↔★   Each year the company became more finessed with intricate partnering and beautiful staging. The dancers leave you scooping your jaw up from the ground. The sets and costumes get bigger and better, but the only thing that seemed to be missing was a story.
★↔★   This year’s Shaping Sound tour “After the Curtain” with music by Son Lux is a story of Vincent (Travis Wall) a writer who lives in his head. The audience gets taken through a dreamy world involving flying,  and seamless transitions with lighting design by Nathan Scheuer and Terese Porterfield. The story is told mostly through the choreography and imaginative set design of Greg Anderson that the dancers move around the stage. Each pás de deux helped push the through line forward showing each character’s relationships and hardships. Many of the visual effects are also very well done by the cast and rival most Broadway shows. It takes you on a ride and left most of the audience as they left the theatre saying, “I didn’t expect that!”
★↔★   The male ensemble was fluid and dynamic while the female ensemble had strong beautiful lines and a sense of cohesiveness you don’t always get out of ensembles.The company members are truly family to each other and it shows on stage.
★↔★   Shaping Sound has been able to bridge the gap between the commercial and concert dance world. By doing so, families who wouldn’t normally see live theatre are choosing to see them live instead of on TV. Each year Shaping Sound has improved, but this year with the addition of a story the company’s future looks very bright.

Review
By Debra Danese for the Dance Journal Shaping Sound
★↔★   After the Curtain made its Philadelphia stop Tuesday, March 7th at the Merriam Theater as part of its 32~city tour. This is the second show for the young company founded in 2012 by good friends Travis Wall, Teddy Forance, Nick Lazzarini and Kyle Robinson. The company has been featured on numerous prime time television shows including So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing with the Stars and Ellen. The first Shaping Sound tour in 2014~15 was comprised of a collection of short pieces, similar to what fans were familiar with seeing on television. After the Curtain takes a different approach by telling an original story written by Wall. Set in the 1940s’, the story is about a director, Vincent (played by Wall), on opening night. Vincent is a man struggling to find his creative voice after the death of his one true love. It is a show within a show — where everything around him is “basically pulling him apart.” The show opens with the dancers entering onstage from the wings and up the aisles. Vincent appears and sits at a desk with a typewriter. We see what he is typing on a screen above. “This is may be my last chance to tell the truth about what happened. Then whoever reads this won’t make the same mistakes I have. I’m Vincent. I live in my head.” Vincent then introduces the cast with a brief description of the role they play in his life. The dancing that follows is nothing short of spectacular. This is a versatile ensemble that excels in intricate and complex partnering work. Lazzarini is edgy in the role of Vincent’s twin brother, Leo. He showcases his extraordinary turning ability with masterful control. Lex Ishimoto is powerful in his role as Jude. Some of the strongest dance numbers feature Ishimoto with gravity defying leaps. Gaby Diaz is both endearing and technically brilliant as Vincent’s sister, Charlotte. A duet between Diaz and Wall is a highlight with Wall partnering Diaz while suspended on a harness. Moving set pieces add an interesting dimension and are well utilized in the choreography. Wall, Lazzarini, and Forance choreographed the show. ★↔★   This lent itself to a diverse variety of movement while still maintaining a cohesive program. It also affirmed that these three men are not only talented performers, but smart and innovative choreographers. Props are often incorporated in clever and dramatic ways.  In one piece, the ensemble dance with hand held lights while in black out. In another, male dancers perform with canes, often used to lift Wall. An especially noteworthy number has Wall dancing amongst floating sheets of paper. The effect is created with the other performers dressed in black and lit only from the sides. This is a company that describe themselves as “visual musicians” and says their dance gives shape and form to sound. The music by Son Lux provides the perfect background to this. In the final pieces, Wall dances as if the music is pouring out of him, displaying vulnerability as his character faces devastation and heartbreak.
