Chase Brock To Premiere First Evening-Length Dance-Theater Piece The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes
Chase Brock, the contemporary choreographer behind the Broadway-bound production Be More Chill and the Artistic Director of Brooklyn-based dance company The Chase Brock Experience, is thrilled to announce the world premiere of his newest creation, The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes. This evening-length dance narrative – the first Mr. Brock has created for his company – will play a strictly limited 17-performance engagement at New York City’s Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, Located between 9th & 10th Avenues) beginning Friday, December 28, 2018.
The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes is a futuristic A.I. thriller set in a high-tech lab where a young, hot-shot coder has been hard at work on a secret project: an extraordinarily lifelike creation who will change not only the life of his creator, but the lives of everyone around him. With a plot out of a binge-worthy Netflix drama, this unique dance-theater piece will feature performances by The Chase Brock Experience company members.
Set to an original, commissioned score by Eric Dietz, performed live on a double-trio of Piano/Roli Seaboard, violin and cello with pre-recorded electronics (including Siri), The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes will feature scenic design by Drama Desk nominee Jason Sherwood (The View Upstairs), costume design by Drama Desk nominee Loren Shaw (Restoration Comedy), lighting design by Drama Desk nominee Brian Tovar (Tamar of the River), and projection design by Mr. Brock’s Be More Chill collaborator Alex Basco Koch.
Tickets for the world premiere of The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes are available starting October 22 from $13.25. In addition, Premium Tickets will be available for $80.25-102.25 and will include VIP seat locations, a limited edition gift inspired by the show and a post-performance close-up look at elements from the show guided by a member of the company. Tickets can purchased online at www.telecharge.com, by phone at 212-239-6200 or at the Theatre Row Box Office.
