Galaxy Dance Studio Theater Offers Press All Things Animate This Weekend

     Galaxy Dance Studio Theater will host two performances of the new multi-media production All Things Animate, the fruit of a long collaboration between critically acclaimed dancer and choreographer Lorn MacDougal and French audio-visual artist and award winning filmmaker Alain Le Razer.  The unique production will be staged on September 22nd

and 23rd.
       MacDougal and Le Razer's dance/film/music theater has been seen in many venues in New York City - where the duo were based throughout the 1980s and '90s - as well as on tour in the U.S., Europe and Asia and in film festivals throughout the world.  Motion is a constant in the films and dances, and original music for acoustic and electronic instruments drives the action.  
     For All Things Animate, the high-energy and virtuosic pieces will be performed live by some of Austin's top modern and hip hop dancers in a celebration of the dialogue between music and dance.  Among the instruments used in the production - and one that is played by the moving body in complement to the choreography - is the Theremin, an electronic instrument created in the early 20th century by the Russian inventor, Léon Theremin, and known for its eery, haunted sound.   In addition, short animated and live action films will bring the saturation of movement and sound to a large screen.
     This multi-dimensional event is a fundraiser for the spacious Galaxy Studio Theater, where MacDougal is a member of the Board of Directors.  The organization is establishing the Studio Theater as a performing venue for world dance in Austin.
     Performances will be September 22nd at 8 p.m. and September 23rd at 5 p.m.  Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors, and $8 for children 12 years old and younger.
      Galaxy Dance Studio Theater is located at 1700 South Lamar Blvd., Suite 338, in the South Lamar Business Park.  For more information and tickets, visit www.GalaxyDances.org.
