Miki Ohlsen’s spectacular Peter Pan story, told on the docks of Fort Adams and the decks of the Oliver Hazard Perry, opens on September 8th. Second Star to the Right: A Tale of Hook and Pan, features a raucous cast of skateboarders, paddleboarders, Lost Boys, Pirate Kings and Queens and of course the dancers of the Island Moving Co. The crew of the Oliver Hazard Perry even takes the stage as a band of scruffy pirates. Replacing IMC dancer Ian Matysiak, who was injured in a bike accident, we welcome Spencer Keith, who has joined us from his work at Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre in Boston.
The Island Moving Co dancers and our Neverland Band met in the studio for our first rehearsal together today. Second Star on the Right opens September 8th and it is going to be amazing. Lauren and Christine have been working on the silks, hung from the rigging of the Oliver Hazard Perry and Eileen Stoops and her collaborator Mitzi have created spectacular costumes and headpieces. Almost sold out!
Glossy magazine New England Monthly has devoted a large part of its August issue to the dancers of the Island Moving Co. An article about our summer season, and a full spread of photos from the Nuit Blanche, plus the cover (!) all illuminate the Company’s part in the cultural landscape.
