Even a hurricane won’t stop NMD from presenting
Catapult: Dance Meets Design
The artists of NMD are catapulting to the end of September to present a new evening of jungle gym choreography. NobleMotion, named Houston’s Best Dance Company and featured on the Emmy Award winning ABC TV show American Crime, has partnered with an industrial design engineer to create 5 custom built interactive sets that shape the space and offer new terrain challenges for the dancers. Deconstructed tunnels, flipping doors, and a 12-foot spinning/teetering propeller are a few of the landscapes. Each structure will offer surfaces for projection mapping and will be engineered as a surreal dancer obstacle course, providing innovative ways to climb, swing, and vault. It’s a physically exciting “must see” show – think dance meets parkour with a dash of cirque.
