Count…the Legend of Dracula
Neos Dance Theatre brings Bram Stoker’s opus to life in a way only an innovative dance company can: by weaving industrial rock, pop, and modern dance into its foggy, neck-hankering horror. The story of the famous vampire and the stake-wielding scholar Professor Van Helsing explodes into a multimedia extravaganza thanks to choreographer Bobby Wesner’s collaboration with an Emmy-winning videographer and an Emmy-winning writer. The finished product blends the macabre and the sublime, like Halloween costumes for cats, amid spooky sets and scene-setting projections. But before the dancers even take the stage, audiences get into the spirit by watching the 1920 silent film Genuine – A Tale of a Vampire, accompanied by the ominous tones of a Mighty Wurlitzer organ played by Sarah Kaufman.
E.J. Thomas Hall
Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
