Ohio Dance Theatre presents Silent Witness and SpindriftMay 7 – 10 Cleveland Public Theatre Gordon Square Theatre

Ohio Dance Theatre presents two exciting new works in DanceWorks 09 at CPT. Silent Witness, developed and choreographed by Artistic Director, Denise Gula, is a multimedia theatrical work revealing the darkness of the human soul. Inspired by the disturbing and poignant images of Genesis House’s Silent Witness exhibit, a display that identifies and honors victims of domestic violence, the work in progress serves as a moving tribute to the victims while bringing attention to this serious social problem.

Ohio Dance Theatre will also feature Spindrift, a contemporary ballet performed to the music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The work reflects the beauty found in our natural world while expressing the serene calm and sudden power of an ever changing New England Coastline.
