NobleMotion Dance performs Escape Velocity  

at Glade Arts Foundation 

Woodlands, TEXAS – NobleMotion Dance performs Escape Velocity: Dance, Design, A.I., an immersive evening of daring jungle gym choreography that premieres at the Glade Arts Foundation in the Woodlands, TX August 12-14. NobleMotion has partnered with industrial artist Jared Doster, A.I. projection designer Jeremy Stewart, and photographer Lynn Lane to create a one-hour journey that transports the audience throughout the gallery. Doster’s climbable sculptures allow the dancers to vault, swing, and flip. It’s a physically exciting show; think dance meets parkour with a dash of cirque.  

There are four gallery performance locations – each offering a different challenge to the dancers. The Cube is a climbable structure that explores the concept of framing space. The A.I. Room uses machine learning to reinterpret dancers’ movements and is projected into the space. The dancers in turn, move through the audience as they respond to the A.I. Two Walls takes advantage of The Glade’s unique environment and plays with entrances and exits. And finally, the audience is brought together for Ziggurat, a 12-foot spinning sculpture that requires teamwork. Escape Velocity is both athletic and communal – a truly unique performance experience in a gallery setting where each viewer is on top of the action. 

The small batch audience is broken into 3 groups—each going on a different performance trajectory. Choreographer Andy Noble states, “you could go to the show three times and see a completely different show. It’s a fun set-up.” 

Artistic Directors Andy and Dionne Noble will collaborate with the dancers to create the bulk of the choreography. To mix it up, guest artists Mike Esperanza, Evelyn Toh Paoli, and Travis Lake have been invited to each choreograph a section as well. “Creatively speaking, this set up is such a unique endeavor, we wanted to share the opportunity with other talented artists,” states Dionne Noble.   

Performers include Rachel Cox Culver, Colette Kerwick, Kalli Loudan, Lindsey McGill, Tyler Orcutt, Jacob Regan, Abby Schafer, Lauren Serrano, Angelica Villa, Allison Wallace, Dillon Bell, Justin Curry, and Evan Warner. Original music is composed by Travis Lake and light design is by Bryan Ealey.
