St. George Dance Company presents Buddy Holly Gets A Date: a modern-day love story set to oldies music. Created and Directed by Artistic Director Jennie Jones with guest choreography by St. George Dance Company dancers, Rachel Holman and Rachel Blackford, and from  Jamie Waters and Tino Smith. 

 

Set to the nostalgic sounds of Connie Francis, The Platters, The Flamingos and of course, Buddy Holly, Buddy Holly Gets A Date juxtaposes the sweet lyrics of 1950s romance with the sometimes “automated” experience of trying to date in a digitally connected world. It explores the universal themes of friendship, unrequited love, heartbreak, and romance through the artistic and athletic movement of contemporary dance, and follows the experience of a modern-day Buddy Holly in his search for love.

 

In the words of creator and director, Jennie Jones, “The lyrics of love songs may have changed over the last 60 years, but the feelings are the same.” Dance is such a beautiful, visceral expression of those more tender feelings of vulnerability and human connection, and this production puts the spectrum of love on full display.. But Buddy Holly isn’t all serious inquiries about love. Drawing from *real-life* research, the dancers take advantage of the opportunity that modern-day dating provides to laugh at ourselves and our shared human experience...but of course, all names have been changed to protect the innocent.
