Choreography by Zvi Gotheiner

 
 

Six decades after the roving, raving bible of the Beat Generation was published, choreographer Zvi Gotheiner and his company set out to retrace Jack Kerouac’s most infamous route, tumbling west over the Rockies toward whatever revelations America’s roadways might yield today. The result is this evening-length work, a pulsing synthesis of sensuous movement, original music by composer Jukka Rintamäki, and kaleidoscopic video footage acquired along the way, courtesy of artist Josh Higgason. Filtering the reckless desire of the Beats through the vantage of the present, On the Road is a danced meditation on youth, freedom, and the call of the open road.
