Cadance Collective at Shorewood Senior Center

Cadance Collective is currently creating a new piece for a private performance at the Shorewood Senior Center.  We had the wonderful opportunity to interview these fascinating individuals about the music and dance of their past, and specifically about the time they spent at the Eagles Club back in the 1930s.  This work will most likely be translated into our next performance at Danceworks, Inc., hopefully this fall.  Stay tuned!

A breathtakingly-relevant, modern retelling of a timeless classic.

“It’s a good story,” says the lone figure, just emerged from the darkness, as he launches into this modern, enthralling adaptation of Homer’s epic poem that relives the glory and brutality of the Trojan War. Wisconsin-favorite actor, James DeVita, shares the stage with a virtuoso musician in this lean, muscular, tour-de-force performance filled with wit and wisdom that conjures the rage of the gods as it delves deep into mankind’s attraction to violence and destruction.

“Pure theater: shocking, glorious, primal, and deeply satisfying.” – TIMEOUT NY
