Before people learned to tip-toe around, everybody always knew exactly who was sneaking the pizza from the fridge at night. Appreciate even more skills of the pointed foot with today's Groupon: for $28, you get two adult price tickets to Intersections, presented by the Alaska Dance Theatre on Friday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. (a $56 value, including service charges and fees).
Featuring four winsome works by three choreographers, Intersections synergizes the skills of the Alaska Dance Theatre and Eugene Ballet Company to create a memorable evening of dance. These contemporary ballet pieces employ a variety of unique toe-tapping tropes, and are crafted by movement magicians whose combined resumés include the Tulsa Ballet Theatre, residencies at the University of Oregon, and honors degrees in comparative bunny-hop studies. Swoon to the multimedia presentation and original music of "Tyranny of the Senses," and enjoy temporary clairvoyance with a sneak peek at the world premiere of "Faces of Eve." "A Solo and 9 Parts," sporting a solo violin and a nonet of dancers, and the perception-exploring "Without the Cover" round out the program.
Rhythm-lauding patrons settle into the seats at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts in the Discovery Theatre, a 700-seat space featuring modern balconies and multiple vantage points from which to see soul-stirring performances and trampoline-free leaps.
