6th Floor Open Arts Space

Casita Maria is proud to present the highly anticipated inaugural production of Morphoses Dance Company in a cutting edge format.

Morphoses was determined to make a difference in the dance world when it began in 2007. Four years later, directed by co-founder Lourdes Lopez, the company remains the same go for broke band of experimentalists dedicated to bringing new choreography to new audiences in new ways.

On October 27, Morphoses will present the world premiere of Luca Veggetti's "Bacchae." Courtesy of Morphoses's fearless imagination, there will be a simultaneous live feed from the Joyce Theater's Thursday night performance to the Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education. The triple performance event, which creates a bridge between what is being performed inside the theater and audiences in multiple outside locations, marks a first for the dance world. It is part of Morphoses's commitment to attracting new and diverse audiences to dance.

The cast for "Bacchae" features Sarah Atkins, Christopher Bordenave, Frances Chiaverini, Brandon Cournay, Adrian Danchig-Waring, Brittany Fridenstine, Gabrielle Lamb, Willy Laury, Morgan Lugo, Emma Pfaeffle, and Yusha-Marie Sorzano. The original score and sound design are by Paolo Aralla; flautist Erin Lesser will play live. Text adaptation and dramaturgy are by Luca Scarlini. The lighting is by Roderick Murray and the costumes are by Luca Veggetti and Benjamin Briones. Nel Shelby Productions will direct Thursday evening's live feed. The equipment, including the projectors, monitors and flat screen televisions, is being provided by NEC.

*This event is free but please RSVP to
