Abstract: A new duet by Artistic Director David Shimotakahara, set to the marimba solo “Rhythm Song” by Paul Smadbeck.

Choreographer: David Shimotakahara

Music: Paul Smadbeck

Press & Reviews

The Plain Dealer

“The ‘summer’ in GroundWorks DanceTheater’s “Summer Series” isn’t just a time marker. It’s also an adjective.” – Zachary Lewis, The Plain Dealer.

Read the article “GroundWorks DanceTheater’s ‘Summer Series’ is a dream on an early summer night (review).”

“David Parker’s ‘All I Do,’ exploits the company’s ability to shift dance gears and engage in whimsical and intricate invention. The New York choreographer juxtaposes show-biz flights, set to “All I Do Is Dream of You” (from the movie Singin’ in the Rain), with sections of madcap patterns danced without music.” – Donald Rosenberg, The Plain Dealer.
