The centuries old Vampire Waiting in secrecy for her...
Original Score by Chris Heckman
Intriguing...haunting, seductive…. all describe Gary Taylor's original tale of DRACULA, a season favorite returning October 24-26 at the Hanesbrands Theatre. Based on the classic tale, but with a contemporary twist. DRACULA is told from the viewpoint of the vampire himself, focusing on his undying and timeless love for Mina.
“Words are not my way of telling a story… This isn't my language, I speak through movement,” says Artistic Director, Gary Taylor. “I tell stories that move… An author is defined as the originator of any written work, I am a choreographer. Dance is my medium and music is my language. For quite some time now I have wanted to tell this story through Dracula's eyes – as a never-ending love story.”
Beside every great original choreographic work, there is a talented, dynamic, intuitive composer. Chris Heckman and Gary Taylor have formed a collaborative relationship to create the language in DRACULA's original full-length score.
Featuring suspense and surprises, audience members will be on the edge of their seats from the moment the curtain rises. DRACULA is definitely a “story that moves”.
