    Kathy Dunn Hamrick: Parade

    Watching even a well-done dancework online is sometimes a disappointing experience, because of frustrating camera perspectives or insufficient lighting or any number of things. But this longform work from KDHDC, this 2017 performance of Hamrick's Parade, it's like it was made for video presentation. Such shows are always better when you're right there in the space with the dancers, sure; but when the view puts you as close to right there as this one does, as if you're slightly above the audience's third row and looking directly onto the stage, and the choreographer's composition is remarkably engaging and the dancers' skills are able to match that power, and it's all lighted by Stephen Pruitt ... well, we're not just listing this to take up space, friend: It's recommended. Bonus: Check out the live band silhouetted by the background scrim – that's some beautifully percussive Drew Silverman action going on right there.
