ROBIN’S SHOW RECOMMENDATION: Ahhh HA!
Ahhh HA! is an engaging and inventive blend of dance, acrobatics, aerial work, striking visual imagery, humor and original music. It is a delight…one of the most imaginative family shows I have seen and one I highly recommend!
Returning to The New Victory after 12 years, the multi-talented Do Jump! ensemble fuses physical skill, comedy and moments of real beauty, and sets it all to live music by the Afro-Hebrew ensemble Klezmocracy.
Founded in 1977, Do Jump! utilizes a groundbreaking approach to explore aerial arts as part of physical theater performance. The company has toured extensively through the U.S. and Canada, including the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles and the Ordway in Minneapolis.
Ahhh HA! is directed and choreographed by Robin Lane and features Curtis Carlyle, Shersten Finley, Lindsay Fischer, Jeff George, Yoji Hall, Nicolo Kehrwald, Mike Mesa, Kailee McMurran, Tony Palomino, Jack Stocklynn, Brittany Walsh and Tia Monet Zapp. Music is performed by Ralph Huntley, Joe Janiga and Courtney Von Drehle of Klezmocracy, in addition to choral music by Conspirare, which is conducted by Craig Hella Johnson. Lighting design is by Ted Shannon and video and sound design is by Sam Kusnetz.
