Saturday, December 3, 2016 - 5:15pm to 8:30pm
Six decades after the roving, raving bible of the Beat Generation was published, choreographer Zvi Gotheiner and his company set out to retrace Jack Kerouac’s most infamous route, tumbling west over the Rockies toward whatever revelations America’s roadways might yield today. The result is this evening-length work, a pulsing synthesis of sensuous movement, original music by composer Jukka Rintamäki, and kaleidoscopic video footage acquired along the way, courtesy of artist Josh Higgason. On the Road is a danced meditation on youth, freedom, and the call of the open road.
The meeting time is at 5:15 p.m. in Lerner Hall.
