fireWALL Dance Theater Company to Present ON THE ROX, 5/23

Unique and edgy as always, off the WALL performing arts center has recently added the creative and energetic fireWALL Dance Theater Company to its growing repertoire. On Friday, May 23rd, fireWALL's six-member dance troupe will debut their first full production at off the WALL with a funny, heartfelt, and raw performance of On the Rox.

Conceived and choreographed by fireWALL's own Elisa-Marie Alaio, On the Rox transports its audience back to yesteryear through the medium of dance. The unusual and challenging combination of history and dance seems natural under Elisa's direction and the dramatic style of off the WALL's new and dynamic company (consisting of Alaio, Maria Gardner, Darren McArthur, Cammi Nevarez, Jenna Rae Smith, and Antwane Younger).

The cross-generational story of On the Rox begins in the late '30?s in a New York City hotel bar, and transitions from one decade to the next over a 50-year period. The piece intertwines and masterfully expresses the extremes of life: heartache and joy, tragedy and renewal, the ugliness of mankind and the beauty of mankind. One commonality throughout the decades is the local bar where people find consolation and camaraderie. After all, there are few things in life that help build relationships more than a drink "On the Rox."

Prepare to be mesmerized by the powerful, theatrical, and lyrical work that defines fireWALL Dance Theater.

Performance dates are May 23-24 and 29-31 at 8:00 p.m. Matinee May 25 at 3:00 p.m. Tickets range from $5.00 - $20.00. Please visit or call 1-888-71-TICKETS to pre-order tickets.
