Tickets on sale Friday, Nov. 18, at 10 a.m.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Travis Wall and Break the Floor Productions brings the second show by America’s hottest dance company, Travis Wall’s Shaping Sound, to Nashville on one of its earliest tour stops with “After The Curtain” on March 14 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, Nov. 18, at 10 a.m. at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.
Shaping Sound was established in Los Angeles in 2012 with a focus on contemporary dance and choreographic artistry. Created by the 2015 Emmy Award winner (and six-time Emmy Award nominee) for Outstanding Choreography, Wall along with partners Nick Lazzarini, Teddy Forance and Kyle Robinson, the company is an evocative collaboration by diverse artists who describe themselves as 'visual musicians' in that their dance gives shape and form to sound.
Shaping Sound has impacted audiences with a unique fusion of jazz, modern and hip-hop choreography. The four young dancers broke into public awareness with the debut of their reality television series “All The Right Moves” on the Oxygen channel which followed them in their quest to launch the dance company. Since that time, they have been showcased on all of America’s popular prime time dance, awards, entertainment and music shows, including “So You Think You Can Dance,” “Dancing With The Stars,” “Glee” and the 2013 Emmy Awards. They were featured in Carrie Underwood’s Grammy Award-winning music video “Something In The Water,” and they are frequent guests on “The Ellen Show.”
“After The Curtain” is the second show for the eclectic dance company, following on the heels of the spell-binding “Dance Reimagined” which toured North America for four years. Conceived and choreographed by Wall, “After The Curtain” tells the story of a man fighting to find his creative voice after the death of his one true love. Heart-wrenching, breath-taking and ultimately uplifting, this is one dance show that audiences will remember forever. Wall will dance in the show throughout the tour, and he will be joined in various cities by Shaping Sound co-founders Robinson and Lazzarini.
Wall, artistic director of Shaping Sound, is the winner of the 2015 Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography, and is a five-time Emmy-nominated choreographer for his work on “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing with the Stars.” The runner-up on the FOX reality show “So You Think You Can Dance”, Wall is currently a resident choreographer for the national dance competition. He choreographed the music video for Carrie Underwood's "Something in the Water," which won the CMT Video of the Year, as well as stage shows for Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato. Additional TV credits include choreographing the 82nd Academy Awards, Disneyland's 60th Anniversary Special on ABC, the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, and an episode of “Pretty Little Liars” featuring Maddie Ziegler. Feature film credits include choreography for “The Wedding Ringer” starring Kevin Hart and contemporary numbers for the feature film, “Step Up Revolution.” Also, he worked with First Lady Michelle Obama on the Let's Move Campaign, where he created the “GimmeFive” routine that was performed on “Ellen” and at The White House. Travis teaches with NUVO Dance Convention.
