AMERICAN DANCE FESTIVAL PRESENTS
@ New York Live Arts
"America is Elvis Presley - the most beautiful, talented, rebellious nation in the history of Earth. And now, you’re in your Vegas years. You’ve squeezed yourself into a white jumpsuit, you’re wheezing your way through “Love Me Tender” and you might be about to pass away bloated on the toilet. But you’re still the King.” – John Oliver
"Right after dendy/donovan projects’ American Dance Festival-commissioned, world premiere “Elvis Everywhere” on July 12 in Duke University’s Reynolds Industries Theater, my friend said: “That was amazing.”
dendy/donovan projects’ choreographer Mark Dendy, artistic director Stephen Donovan and six accomplished dancers: Chris Bell, London Brison, Colette Krogol, Frankie Lee lll, Matt Reeves and Mei Yamanaka made it so.
Dendy’s extensive research and choreography in collaboration with the dancers informed this work. And, so did Donovan’s video, sound, lighting and costume designs that included the five sequined Elvis outfits, that he also constructed".
