“House Lights Up” Presented at Moves after Dark

Inside the nearby Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the imaginations of Laura Karlin and Jonathan Bryant of Invertigo Dance Theatre went wild. The company’s “House Lights Up” offered a flipped perspective, placing the audience at the foot of the stage and the performers among the Dorothy Chandler’s vast sea of orchestra seats.

Legs tip-toed and tumbled over chairs, dancers leaped between rows like gazelles, and an aviator-capped Corina Kinnear plucked beautifully arched bodies from between the seats’ velvety folds. White, ruffled tunics and leotards by Rosalida Medina completed the company’s whimsical display of turning torsos, lyrical lifts and statuesque stances.
