Travis Wall and SHAPING SOUND to Bring AFTER THE CURTAIN to the Palace
Through his Emmy Award-winning work on "So You Think You Can Dance," Travis Wall has established himself as one of America's favorite choreographers. His artistic direction of SHAPING SOUND has already produced one spell-binding show in "Dance Reimagined," which has captivated audiences all across North America.
Now, Wall and SHAPING SOUND are back with their brand new show, "After the Curtain." These visual musicians continue to dazzle audiences as they tell the story of a man fighting to find his creative voice after the death of his one true love. Heart-wrenching, breathtaking, and ultimately uplifting, this is one dance show that audiences will remember forever.
CAPA presents SHAPING SOUND at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Saturday, November 4, at 8 pm. Tickets are $30-$76 at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets, and www.ticketmaster.com. To purchase tickets by phone, call (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000.
SHAPING SOUND was established in Los Angeles in 2012 with a focus on contemporary dance and choreographic artistry. Created by the 2015 Emmy Award winner (and six-time Emmy Award nominee) for Outstanding Choreography Travis Wall, along with partners Nick Lazzarini, Teddy Forance, and Kyle Robinson, the company is an evocative collaboration by diverse artists who describe themselves as "visual musicians," meaning their dance gives shape and form to sound. SHAPING SOUND has impacted audiences with a unique fusion of jazz, modern, and hip-hop choreography. The four young dancers broke into public awareness with the debut of their reality television series "All the Right Moves" on the Oxygen channel which followed them in their quest to launch the dance company. Since that time, they have been showcased on all of America's popular prime-time dance, awards, entertainment, and music shows, including: "So You Think You Can Dance," "Dancing with the Stars," "Glee," and The 2013 Prime-Time Emmy Awards. They were featured in Carrie Underwood's Grammy Award-winning music video "Something in the Water," and are frequent guests on "The Ellen Show." For more information, visit www.SHAPINGSOUNDCO.COM.
Conceived and choreographed by Travis Wall, After the Curtain is the second show for the eclectic dance company, following on the heels of the spell-binding Dance Reimagined which toured North America for four years. Wall will dance in the show throughout the tour, and will be joined in various cities by his SHAPING SOUND co-founders Teddy Forance and Nick Lazzarini.
Winner of the 2015 Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography, Wall was the runner-up for the FOX reality show "So You Think You Can Dance" (Season 2), and is currently a resident choreographer for the national dance competition show. He is a five-time Emmy nominated choreographer for his work on "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing with the Stars." He choreographed the music video for Carrie Underwood's "Something in The Water," which won the CMT Video of the Year, as well as stage shows for Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato. Additional TV credits include choreographing the 82nd Academy Awards, Disneyland's 60th Anniversary Special on ABC, the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, and an episode of "Pretty Little Liars" featuring Maddie Ziegler. Feature film credits include choreography for The Wedding Ringer starring Kevin Hart, and the contemporary numbers for the feature film Step Up Revolution. He had the privilege of working with First Lady Michelle Obama on her Let's Move Campaign where he created the GimmeFive routine that was performed on "Ellen" and at The White House.
