Chase Brock, is making a name for himself, first with Spiderman Turn Off The Dark, Tamar of the River, First Lady Suite and Be More Chill. This contemporary choreographer is also the Artistic Director of Brooklyn-based dance company The Chase BrockExperience. His newest creation, The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes, 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 BrockExperience 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.
T2C sat down with this fascinating, energetic choreographer to learn more. We predict when award season comes he will be highly nominated.
