Baton Rouge, LA - New Venture Theatre launches its new dance theatre company, New Venture Movement, with the dance showcase “Abstraction.” This dance showcase is directed and choreographed by Jeoffery Harris, Jr. and will be performed on June 27 and 28, 2015,  at the Hartley/Vey Studio Theatre located inside the Manship Theatre.

 

If you are not already familiar with the incredible dancers we have in our city, then you will not want to miss New Venture Movement’s first dance showcase, “Abstraction.” This new dance musical celebrates visual art and explores the vivid, emotional and story behind the canvas.


“Abstraction” is an innovative, new dance showcase that combines visual art, dance, and fashion to create an artistic experience like never before. Several of our city’s best choreographers have accepted the challenge to produce a dance that expresses the true meaning of their assigned artistic works. The result is a wonderful one-hour experience that celebrates dance through a rich and luscious expression of movement, story, color and emotion as we bring art to life.
