Enjoy dance under the night sky with your friends and family. Drawing on elements of dramatic theatre, “Amore” fuses Artesan's fearless choreographic style and moving musical selections with physical prowess in a tour de force performance. “Amore” is a love story featuring professional dancers from across the United States and choreography by Artistic Director Summer Odell Ovies. Enjoy Artesan’s new performance “Amore” under the moonlight on May 4-6 & 12 at 8pm at the new indoor-outdoor theatre (chosen for its unique and modern design) at Redding School of the Arts.
Redding, California-based Artesan Dance Company began in 2006 with its current leader, Artistic Director Summer Odell Ovies, at the helm. With only three dancers, one of them being Summer herself, the company laid foundations for what would eventually become its current iteration. Since then, Summer has nurtured the exciting intersections of hip-hop, breakdancing, modern and ballet that make up the signature movement blend of her company, performing at such venues as the world-renowned Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Inside/Out stage (Berkshires, MA), The Casino de Paris (Paris,France) and across the West Coast.
(Artesan Dance Company is in proud partnership with Promoting Arts Now and Redding School of the Arts in support of their capital campaign for construction the new state-of-the-art theatrical center in Redding, California.)
