“A nonstop binge of attitude, high-energy stepping, & freewheeling virtuosity.” – Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice
Dancenow [NYC] presents Nicholas Leichter dance’s new The Whiz: Emerald City, the Wizard of Oz for the Obama generation, as a part of the Spring 2010 Dancemopolitan series. After the inspired debut of You Can't Win Brand New Day Medley at the 2009 Dancemopolitan Modern [Dance] Musical series, dancenow invited Nicholas Leichter and Monstah Black to expand their piece into a full-evening work. Using music reconstructed from The Wiz and some added selections, THE WHIZ re-magines New York’s underground communities through song, dance, and Prince-esque extravaganzardry. Leichter will choreograph and perform with his company of eight dancers; while Black reconstructs and performs the score live.
The Oz of Leichter and Black references the film characters, but is a reflection on 21st-century New York in movement and melody rather than musical-theater homage. Various themes appear throughout the 70-minute work with an array of different styles—house, funk, postmodern, drag, hip-hop, contemporary, and psychedelic—which traverse a landscape of hopes, fears, and dreams.
