20th Anniversary Concert - City in Motion

April 29, 2006 - Performance
April 28, 2006 - Dress Rehearsal
GEM Theater, Kansas City, MO

 

City in Motion revived a number of pieces from the past and brought in two choreographers to re-do their pieces. The company also brought "There Ain't No Grave" to the professional company for the first time. The piece, by Donna Frogge (frohzz), has always before been performed by the apprentice company.

The "For the Kids" suite used seven interwoven and differently costumed short pieces laternating between the adult company and the childrens company, finishing with a combined adult and children's piece "Good Night Children Everywhere."
