Dark Circles Contemporary Dance presents Aladdin. The company celebrates the opening of its 2018-19 Season in the U.S.A. with a brand-new immersive evening-length creation by international award-winning choreographer and founder of Dark Circles Joshua L. Peugh based on the story “The History of Aladdin, or The Wonderful Lamp.” Aladdin, حبيبي is a meditation on American rhetoric regarding the Middle East and the stereotypes associated with Middle Eastern races and cultures. The new work also explores how time and imagination have transformed the original tale of Aladdin and his magical lamp. The work touches on women's rights, anti-Semitism, violence, public pressure, domestic politics, and foreign policy. A brand-new score for the work has been commissioned from composer and SMU Meadows School of the Arts alumnus Brandon Carson and will be performed live. The production will feature a lighting design by Roma Flowers. Susan Austin will provide the costume design. | October 11 at 7:30 PM and October 14 at 11:30 PM.
