Hillsborough Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Series present Orange Grove Dance on September 20 & 21, 2019 at the Mainstage Theatre, HCC Ybor City campus. Orange Grove Dance, under the direction of Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves, transforms the stage with its trademark virtuosic athleticism and evocative multimedia design. This presentation features their award winning work Holding, Here and the world premiere of their extended work Frequency.
Frequency casts it’s performers into a vast friction filled digital landscape that evokes images and relationships from a past grievously misremembered. A duet between Artistic Directors Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves, Frequency is a throwback to the companies genesis as a duet company and reflects the significance of time spent trying to tune two lives together.
Based on mythopoetic research into personal dreams and stories of one family’s migration from Cuba in 1980, Orange Grove Dance opens up new dialogues on timely themes such as migration, exodus, and transformation. Holding, Here won the Audience Choice Award at the 34th Annual Choreographers’ Showcase in 2017. It was described by Dance Metro DC as a “magically spun… visual tale of suspension, tension, and community within a multilayered moving painting.”
