Mix It Up, a concert series at Theatre on the Run in Arlington features dance, music and movement by distinctive Washington DC area artists. Each week look for a different up-close performance.  Who will perform and when? Mix It Up takes place on Saturdays November 9, 16 and 23, 2019 at 7:30 pm with performances by Jane Franklin Dance, Forty+ by Kelsey Rohr, Light Switch Dance Theatre and choreography by Emily Crews and Rachel Luebbert.  

November 9, 2019:

  •         Jane Franklin Dance’s Going Polar is a devised movement-theatre work about opposition, opinion and the balance between beliefs, facts and emotions. It’s difficult to change someone’s mind; easy to not be swayed. Music is by Mark Sylvester, a skilled guitarist and composer.
  •         New Work for Forty+ is by Kelsey Rohr. Forty+ is a group of community based dancers. Through this new work developed by Kelsey Rohr, we experience the collective creativity of people past the age of 40. 
  •         Emily Crews of Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble presents a delightful clogging duet that brings audiences a high energy, percussive experience. Clogging is a type of street dance that evolved in urban environments. By adding local steps and rhythms to the shuffle style and bluegrass music cloggers continue to change and modify the art form.
