What do Buena Vista Social Club, Bach, Bruno Mars and Jimmy Buffett have in common? You’ll come across them all as you explore an overgrown Civil War-era fort, filled with music, dance and spoken word performances that cohere into a magical and funky portrait of Key West. A jazz trio serenades from the beach; a dancer leaps like an orchid, ghosts appear with operatic splendor and it all concludes with an exuberant full-tilt boogie.
The world premiere of an innovative professional dance production awaits audiences on the grounds of a lushly landscaped Civil War-era fort Thursday through Saturday, April 13-15.
“Key West Reverie” was conceived, directed and choreographed by New York City’s Wendy Taucher Dance Opera Theater and produced by The Studios of Key West. Described as an impressionistic portrait of the island city, the site-specific performance series takes place at West Martello Tower, headquarters of the Key West Garden Club overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at 1100 Atlantic Blvd.
Vocalists, dancers and musicians from the world’s greatest stages, alongside professionals and volunteers from Key West, perform a series of vignettes for audiences to encounter as they explore the grounds.
