Kevin Curtis will examine the relevance of “Hair” and the way dance is utilized to express freedom for “Stage Whispers: Conversations with Theatre Professionals” at 10 a.m. on Sept. 27 in the Black Box Theatre at Tower Fine Arts Center, 180 Holley St., Brockport.
Curtis serves as dance captain for the upcoming Geva Theatre Center production of “Hair.” His talk, “Long, Beautiful ‘Hair’: The Cross-Generational Reach of America’s Favorite Tribal Love-Rock Musical,” is the first installment of the 2018 “Stage Whispers” series offered by The College at Brockport Department of Theatre and Music Studies.
With its American tribal love-rock musical vibe, “Hair” seems mired not only in a different decade but, at this point, a different century. Yet, the activism depicted onstage compared to the current #MeToo and #NeverAgain movements indicate that youth still want their voices heard.
Curtis will make his Geva debut in “Hair.” He previously appeared in the national tour of “A Chorus Line” and the off-Broadway production of “Invisible Thread.” His film credits include “Take Care” and “Newlyweds.”
Admission is free. Call (585) 395-2496 for information.
