Stage shows involving earth, wind and fire may make potential audience members think of the groovy group that banded together in 1969 and sang about Boogie Wonderlands, but Idaho Dance Theatre will add water and take the elements in a different direction with its Fall Show.
IDT kicks off its 24th season beginning Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Boise State University Special Events Center. The show features three works including a new piece that explores the four elements—earth, wind, water and fire. Co-Artistic Director/painter/Renaissance man Carl Rowe and local composer David Alan Earnest collaborated on the piece that, according to a press release, is "full of visual surprises."
The modern dance troupe's performance will also include the restaging of Co-Artistic Director Marla Hansen's ballet Chakra, set to the cello-rock music of Apocalyptica. The piece features the entire dance company in six parts, including duets and ensembles.
Rowe's Rorschach will also be reprised for the performance, which includes the music of Flairck, a Dutch ensemble with folk, chamber, blues and jazz influences.
The Thursday, Nov. 1, performance will be a discounted preview night. The show will continue through Sunday, Nov. 4.
