D.C.-based Dance Place will present its tribute to Marvin Gaye, “What’s Going On,” tonight at CenterStage in Reston.
According to information available on Dance Place’s website, the show is the troupe’s first full-length production. The artistic director of the show, which was first performed in November, is Vincent Thomas. Thomas used Gaye’s 1971 album of the same name as the show’s lifeblood.
“Taking inspiration from 1971’s inimitable What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye’s insights into life, love and social justice are given fresh perspectives with new choreography by Vincent E. Thomas, Ralph Glenmore and Sylvia Soumah. What’s Going On seeks to provoke thoughtfulness and spark conversations to ignite change in each community it touches.”
The performance features modern, jazz and West African dance. Gin Dance Company will join the show as well.
The show is scheduled for tonight at 8 p.m. at CenterStage at Reston Community Center (2310 Colts Neck Road). Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for non-Restonians. For more information, call Paul Douglas Michnewicz at 703-390-6167.
