late night tales

Join us as we kick off our 2024/2025 season with an evening of dynamic dancing from four choreographers! 

Sean Aaron Carmon, formerly of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, brings his unique, energetic, and athletic style to Indianapolis for a never-before-seen work. 

“…(Carmon’s) mercurial volatility packs a punch.” – The New York Times

Christel DeHaan Artistic Director Joshua Blake Carter presents the world premiere of Late Night Tales, a collection of short works developed over seven years that represent the stages of dreaming and begs the question, “Did that really happen?” 

Celebrate the centennial of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the revival of Artistic Director Emeritus David Hochoy’s Choo-San Goh Award-Winning work of the same name

Revisit the work of NYC-based choreographer Janice Rosario’s visually stunning Peak/Valley.

nothing is forever, darling

Singer/Songwriter Rufus Wainwright was once asked in an interview about his future with a lover. The artist simply said, “Nothing is forever, darling.” This quote inspired the title for Christel DeHaan Artistic Director Joshua Blake Carter’s 2009 work. 

15 years later, Carter revisits this semi-personal coming-of-age story set to a suite of Wainwright’s music, including “Pretty Things,” “Leaving for Paris,” and “14th Street.” 

The program also includes the world premiere of Carter’s Shaker Loops, set to John Adam’s vibrant score of the same name.

  • JANUARY 17-19, 2025


After a nationwide search that garnered applications from nearly 80 up-and-coming artists, we invite you to witness a world premiere from our first-ever Jaffe & Hall Emerging Choreographer Award Winner! 

Created to celebrate the legacy and vision of former Dance Kaleidoscope Artistic Directors Cherri Jaffee and Ginger Hall, this award aims to bring unique, emerging voices to the forefront of contemporary dance. 

The evening will also feature a revival of Stuart Lewis’ “Sweet Sorrow,” a one-act modern-day retelling of the timeless Romeo and Juliet, and a revival from Christel DeHaan Artistic Director Joshua Blake Carter.

  • MARCH 14-16, 2025

under the covers

Featuring the unique artistry of Atlanta-based choreographer Autumn Eckman and Christel DeHaan Artistic Director Joshua Blake Carter, our season finale will be a crowd-pleasing showstopper.

With a career that boasts stints at Giordano Dance Chicago, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and State Street Ballet, Eckman is set to create a world premiere that will set the stage on fire.

“Eckman is a bright choreographic stylist, mixing solid design with color and sparkle.” -Chicago Tribune

Utilizing the hauntingly beautiful voice of vocal artist James Blake, Joshua Blake Carter presents the world premiere of Under the Covers, featuring covers of Roberta Flack, Billie Eilish, and Beyoncé. Carter’s new work explores the dynamics of human relationships behind closed doors: the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly. 

Back by popular demand is Carter’s 2024 Stories from the Corner Bar, featuring the soul-stirring music of singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile. 

“…mirroring the emotional contours of Carlile’s songs in movement that sets attraction and rejection side by side, blending them so that it’s difficult to tell what’s getting the upper hand.” -Jay Harvey Upstage
