TRAVIS WALL AND BREAK THE FLOOR PRODUCTIONS
ANNOUNCE BROOKLYN DATE for NATIONAL TOUR OF
‘AFTER THE CURTAIN’
SHAPING SOUND’S GROUNDBREAKING NEW SHOW
TRAVIS WALL and Break The Floor ProductionS are pleased to announce a Brooklyn date in the 2017 national tour of the new show by America’s hottest dance company, Travis Wall’s SHAPING SOUND. After The Curtain will begin touring March 1st in Utica, New York and play eighteen cities and then will resume in June with thirteen additional cities on the tour, including Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY on June 16.
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 Travis 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’ i.e. 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 Prime Time 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 TRAVIS 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. TRAVIS WALL will be dancing in the show throughout the tour schedule, and he will be joined in various cities by his SHAPING SOUNDco-founders TEDDY FORANCE and NICK LAZZARINI.
TRAVIS WALL, Artistic Director is the winner of the 2015 Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography. He was the runner-up for the Fox reality show So You Think You Can Dance Season 2, and is currently a resident choreographer for the national dance competition show. He is a five-time Emmy nominated choreographer for his work on So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars. 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.

About the Kings Theatre
The historic Kings Theatre reopened its doors in 2015 as one of New York’s premiere performing arts venues. Providing a destination for large-scale popular entertainment and serving as a resource for local arts groups and community organizations, the City-owned Theatre is a cultural and economic cornerstone of the Flatbush community and a major fixture to Brooklyn’s vibrant cultural landscape. The Kings Theatre was originally designed by Rapp & Rapp in 1929 and was one of the five Loew’s ‘Wonder Theatres’ built in New York and New Jersey during that period. Featuring high curved ceilings, ornate plaster walls, wood paneling, and a glazed terra-cotta ornamental façade, the classic 20th-century movie palace was inspired by the French Renaissance Revival style of the Palace of Versailles and the Paris Opera House. Spearheaded by ACE Theatrical Group and designed by Martinez+Johnson Architecture, with Gilbane Building Company serving as construction manager, the redevelopment project both revives the historic structure’s original splendor and transforms the Theatre into a state-of-the-art facility with over 3,000 seats—the largest of its kind in Brooklyn. The Theatre was recently selected as a recipient of the 2014 New York State Historic Preservation Award for excellence in preservation and revitalization, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
