Dance is an art form like no other. There’s something magical about watching dancers glide around the stage exuding grace and power, telling a story with their movement.
Nobody knows this better than Regina Klenjoski, Choreographer and Art Director of the Regina Klenjoski Dance Company (RKDC). Regina has created a new dance theater performance to share a story very near-and-dear to her own heart: the story of how her parents immigrated to America from Macedonia more than 50 years ago.
But this isn’t your average dance show. The multimedia dance performance also features documentary film, poetry, and original music from Macedonian composer Toni Kitanovski. It’s a larger-than-life cinematic experience showing that we all have much more in common that we think.
“Audiences can expect really beautiful dancing. It’s a company of five performers, very athletic and expressive movement, but also really rooted in these themes that over-arch the entire evening, which is immigration and migration and home. They can expect poetry, original music, and there will be film/documentary work that’s part of the show as well. There’s many different theatrical elements that are coming together, not just contemporary dance. It’s very visual, cinematic, and it’s very visceral in its reaction. It’s very emotional content,” Regina shared during her TOCA Backstage interview with Chris Wolf.
