Using history and disrupt/ed-ive narrative to ask critical questions about today’s world, Bonnie & Clyde personalizes the contemporary issues of gun violence and prison reform through the lens of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow’s story. Situated in the 1930s through original music, costume, lighting, and immersive set design, this work  looks inward at the emotional experience of two young criminals from Texas in the midst of the Great Depression. Through compelling choreography the couple’s sensationalized drama is peeled back to reveal the human experience of love, desperation, and violence.

Wonka!, Open Dance Project’s tribute to Roald Dahl’s classic coming of age story, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This dance theater romp for family audiences follows kind-hearted Charlie Bucket on his search for a golden ticket that grants him access to the famed Wonka Chocolate Factory. Once inside, Charlie and his Grandpa Joe join a rather unpleasant bunch of children and their parents on a series of misadventures. ODP celebrates the wit and imagination of Roald Dahl through their signature blend of athleticism and humor with a multigenerational cast of professional dancers and aerialists
