Premiere of "The Better to Bite You With" at the Jazz Bakery on April 19 at 3:30 pm.


We gave two free previews at The Jazz Bakery earlier this week, and had a great reaction! The premiere is part of the Jazz Bakery series. The photos of the masks above, the birds at the top of the column, the animals above, and Grandma below are part of the production. The audience was filled to capacity for both performances! Some of the comments from the surveys that were returned after the performances included: "The kids in the audience from 3 year olds to teens were all laughing and engaged the whole time!", and from the many adults in the audience "The interaction and photos were really cool", "great music and dance along with a good storyline", "great program for kids and for us". Some of the favorite parts were how we incorporated photos of everyone's teeth taken in the lobby before they entered the theatre, the amazing masks as above and the dance that went with it, and ALL of the individual dances. Don't miss this ONE SHOW ONLY remaining on the 19th.

Louise Reichlin & Dancers/LA Choreographers & Dancers creates a new interactive program for families. And you don't have to have children to enjoy it! The forty-five minute dance/theatre/multimedia performance is called "The Better to Bite You With" and features a modernized fairytale based on "Little Red Riding Hood," found in just about every culture around the world. The interactive work was inspired by the new technology in computer x-rays that creator Louise Reichlin's dentist used last year. A number of these type of x-rays are actually part of the presentation, along with original masks and a set-piece by Stephen Kwok. Part of "The Reality Series", this new work turns to the theme of teeth, one of the most basic and important parts of our (and many animals') bodies. This sophisticated theatrical adventure is woven with technology, narration, music ranging from Dixieland and Liz Story to King Crimson, and of course dance.

The premiere is on Sunday April 19, 2009. The ticket price includes the 3:30 start time for "The Better to Bite You With" and stay or arrive at 4:30 for three dances from the dance/multimedia "The Reality Series". These interactive pieces ask the audience to explore everyday events that often go unnoticed. They include "The Shampoo", "Los(t) Angeles", and "Identity".

Director is Louise Reichlin. Featured performers include Lynn Campbell, Genna Forkey, Samantha Hoe, Anaja Holloway, Steven Nielsen, Sung-Yun Park, Louise Reichlin, Jaclyn Speas and Salinee Vanichanan.
The performances are made possible in part by the Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers is funded in part by a grant from the California Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Also the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.

Special Thanks
Special thanks to our government fundors that certainly deserve our attention. Without them (and many of you who donate to our company) we could not continue. Please go to our web site and make a donation.  The upside of the financial problems due to the LAUSD default on its arts contracts is more time to work on the new program. But -  we can sure use your help. To see who else has been helping us please see the funding page of our Fall Newsletter.
