LED Returns to the Morrison Center with JABBERWOCK
LED, the Boise-based nonprofit performing arts organization, is returning to the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts in Boise, Idaho for the one-night-only world premiere of their newest evening-length production Jabberwock on March 2nd, 2019.
Jabberwock, a contemporary adaptation of Lewis Carroll's nonsense poem "Jabberwocky", uses the classic hero's tale to create a world of suspense and whimsy, exploring themes of good versus evil, resilience, autonomy and truth. Set within a dystopian 1950's inspired office space, we begin to see the balance of power shift as we're left questioning who will flourish and who will escape this place to discover something greater beyond its mythical walls.
Jabberwock includes choreography by Lauren Edson, brand new original music composed by Andrew Stensaas, visual design by Kyle Morck, and lighting design by Michael Mazzola.
LED has assembled a cast of world class dancers from all over the country for this production: Ching Ching Wong (NW Dance Project, Princess Grace Award, Dance Magazine's "25 to Watch"), Brett Perry (Trey McIntyre Project, Princess Grace Award), ?ukasz Zi?ba (Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, Company XIV), Allie Kronick(Abarukas), Emma Lalor (T Lang Dance), Maxwell Parr Perkins (Loni Landon Dance Project), and Nell Rollins (Ballet Idaho).
The world premiere of Jabberwock is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Morrison Center Endowment Foundation and the City of Boise Department of Arts & History.
