Kanopy Dance Company Postpones The Far Out Prophecies of Nostradamus, at the Overture Center for the Arts: The April 17-19, 2020 Run is to be Rescheduled late  Spring

Classes at the Kanopy Academy of Dance  (Kanopy’s school of dance) Suspended Immediately until April 6, 2020 (date subject to changing conditions)

With the serious threat of the coronavirus pandemic and in the best interest of protecting our patrons, artists, Kanopy families and the larger community, we are joining our arts colleagues here and across the country in cancelling our April 17-19, 2020 run of The Far Out Prophecies of Nostradamus (Nostradamus), a wildly creative collaboration with Madison’s energetic, pick-up theater company, Are We Delicious?

Kanopy Dance is in the process of rescheduling Nostradamus in either mid-May or June 2020, with officials at the Overture Center for the Arts.

Kanopy Dance Academy to Suspend Classes Immediately until April 6, 2020

As is our protocol, Kanopy Dance Company will be following the guidelines of public health officials and the Madison Public Schools and suspending all of our classes at the Kanopy Academy of Dance immediately until at least Monday, April 6, 2020, contingent on changing conditions.

While we are disappointed to make this decision, cancelling our 40 weekly class sessions, the health and safety of our students/families, teacher/dancers and our community are our first priority. We will extend our school year/spring quarter out to May 30, 2020.

We will also continue to monitor the impact of the coronavirus with our local, state and federal health authorities on an ongoing basis in this rapidly changing environment, and are fully committed to following their recommendations and guidelines in determining when to safely resume classes at the Kanopy Dance Academy.

 

 

 

FAR-OUT PROPHECIES OF NOSTRADAMUS POSTPONED

The Far-Out Prophecies of Nostradamus
An ingenious collaboration full of Surprises
with
Are We Delicious?
The Fresh. Local. Fun Theatre Ensemble
 
At the Overture Center for the Arts 

POSTPONED- TO BE RESCHEDULED FOR MAY/JUNE 2020

The Far-Out Prophecies of Nostradamus,
In a wildly creative collaboration, Kanopy Dance will partner with Madison’s energetic, pick-up theater company, Are We Delicious?, to stage an evening of vignettes colored by a 1960’s vibe and exploring life’s unexpected journeys.The storyline is fueled by stanzas from the Prophecies of mysterious French astrologer, physician and poet, Nostradamus.
 
In The Far-Out Prophecies of Nostradamus, we will meet 5 protagonists who attended college in the late 1960s and performed in a band together. Actually, there were 6 friends, but one of them is dead, and their periodic get-togethers are on the pretense of memorializing the lost friend (very Big Chill). The play will take place at different periods during their life’s path, as they emerge from the innocence of college students/musicians to “professionals” with trajectories that may be different than what they imagined as “dreamers” in their dorm rooms.
 
Starting with a blank slate, multi-disciplinary teams of writers-composers-choreographers are weaving this tapestry, integrating theatre, dance and music into an original world premiere over the course of some 7 days.
 
Composers Sean Michael Dargan (Get Back Wisconsin) and Cat Capellaro and Andrew Rohn (VO5, Walmartopia, Temps!) will set the tone with an original soundtrack inspired by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, the Moody Blues and by musical voices up to the present.
 
Dance fans should expect an amazing tale expressed through dance, spoken word, and onstage live music. Each choreographer comes from slightly different backgrounds— modern, contemporary and ballet – but all are grounded by the modern Graham aesthetic. Quatrains chosen from the Prophecies of Nostradamus are full of powerful images to choreograph that will ignite the evening with dramatic and exciting dance…

Friday 7:30pm; Saturday 5:00pm & 8:00pm, Sunday 2:30pm
Tickets: www.overturecenter.org, 608.258.4141. All seats are reserved  (No open seating) Single Ticket Prices: $35/general, $28/students, $18/children, and youth
