Centenary Stage Company Dance And Music Doubleheader This Weekend

Centenary Stage Company will present a dance and music doubleheader this weekend, March 7th and 8th. Under the artistic direction of Maureen Glennon Clayton, moe-tion dance theater will present an evening of dance as part of Centenary Stage Company's 2019-2020 Professional Dance Series, Saturday, March 7th at 8:00 pm.

Centenary Stage Company will then continue its Professional Music Series with Act III: A Musical Journey featuring Irish Tenor, Timothy Smith, on Sunday, March 8th at 2:00 pm. Both performances will take place in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Ave. Hackettstown, NJ.

The Saturday evening performance by moe-tion dance theater will showcase five noteworthy pieces, two of which will be world premieres: tHEre and green-eyed. tHEre is a male duet, choreographed by Glennon Clayton in collaboration with dancers Bryan Matland and Andrew Kruep, exploring the stereotype of a strong man. It finds moments of vulnerability and tenderness, while portraying a relationship of mutual support. green-eyed, a fun, silly piece about jealousy, is choreographed by Glennon Clayton and Centenary Stage Company's own Lea Antolini, tour director for the YAS (CSC's Young Audience Series) and Centenary University professor. Glennon Clayton will also present Betty, a piece she choreographed about her grandmother who suffered with dementia. Set and Fabrication Design by Angus Clayton. Also showcasing at the concert will be Ebb & Flow, a piece exploring the waves of energy within ourselves and amongst others. Finally, moe-tion dance theater company member, Rachel Brown will present Making Herstory, inspired by the saying, "real Queens straighten each other's crowns." This piece represents the power of women and the strength they use to support one another, brushing aside stereotypes and expectations.
