The decisions are all yours in this narrative dance adventure!

The decisions are all yours in this narrative dance adventure modeled after the favorite children’s book. Audiences are invited to make decisions as the division between audience and performer is eliminated and viewers truly step into the story. Your decisions shape the dances, as you become the author of the performance. The production is an unprecedented collaboration featuring six local composers, six choreographers, six writers, costume designer El Malott and the talented ladies of Modern Makers creating the breathtaking set. Come play with us as you become the star of the story and choose your own adventure!

1) Collaborations: music by six local composers, written by six playwrights, co-choreographed by six choreographers + El Malott costumes and Modern Makers set.

2) Participatory: the audience gets to make the choices. The show will be different each night!

3) Dance made accessible

Featuring music from:

We are Snapdragon - Cold Steele Blade
The Cincy Brass - The House Lick
You, You're Awesome - Choose Your Own Adventure
Molly Sullivan - I Burn it at Both Ends
Cary Davenport - Fantasy
Diet Audio - Romance

    Harper and I are very excited to see (and participate in) this collaborative new show from Pones Inc! We've both worked with Pones in the past and are excited to be performing along side this exciting and creative group as part of Cincinnati Fringe 2013.

    Cheers, and good luck, friends!

    We are long fans of Pones, Inc., a dance company with a strong community involvement mission. Their dancing was superb. Their fringe pieces often involve creative audience interaction. This is what connected the dance pieces this time, but the dance itself was the real pleasure.
