We Love Pink! July 9-10 at the Colliseum in Daytona Beach



Volusia County’s resident professional dance company, Surfscape Contemporary Dance Theatre, presents “Another Brick in the Wall” at The Coliseum on July 9th & 10th.

Back by popular demand, this rock opera features a full-scale professional dance performance and highlights live music and ideas from Pink Floyd’s, The Wall. Dance enthusiasts and rock music lovers alike will enjoy an engaging evening of live music, light shows, videography, and professional dance. Presented in a night club setting, “Another Brick in the Wall” features the company’s highly trained dancers, compelling choreography by the company’s two founding Artistic Directors, Rachael Leonard and Kristin Polizzi, and music by Pink Floyd cover band, Earthbound Misfits. In addition, the mixed-media show will include an organic light show and performance art by PeregoLive, videography by Doug Ratcliff, and artwork by Morgan Steele. Although different from the company’s highly acclaimed repertory dance performances, Surfscape’s ground-breaking Pink Floyd tribute show is a "don't miss" event!. Although anyone is welcome to attend the performance, it is recommended for people over the age of 12.

Performances of “Another Brick in the Wall”, held at The Coliseum, are set for Friday, July 9th at 7:00pm and Saturday, July 10th at 7:00p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for students/youth and can be purchased through the SCDT box office: 386-366-5108. In addition, the company will perform new choreography this fall/winter. For more information about SCDT, please phone 386-233-4885 or log on to www.surfscapedance.org for photos and a calendar of events.
