Las Vegas Contemporary Dance Theater Celebrating 10 Years of Excellence

The Las Vegas Contemporary Dance Theater celebrates ten years of excellence of their most popular and moving works. This evening of dances will also showcase the world premiere of "LOTUS," Commissioned by the Laguna Arts Festival in 2014 and set to the score of Vaughan Williams. The original score was composed by composer Alan Chan. The Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach Live!, and Laguna Dance Festival joined forces to commission a short, original, music-and-dance work inspired by a work of art in the museum’s collection. The inspiring artwork was Lee Mullican's Lotus Land, Oil Painting on Canvas – 1967. Lee Mullican (1919-1998) was a painter and art teacher, and an influential member of the Dynaton Movement. His Abstract style and stitch-like brush marks were inspired by Native American textiles, which he collected. The title (Lotus Land) refers to the lotus-eaters of Greek mythology, who lived in an idyllic world and ate the narcotic lotus.
