GO! Contemporary Dance Works

Experience the Difference

GO! Contemporary Dance WorksThe 43 member GO! Contemporary Dance Works is more than your typical group of dancers.  Consisting of pre-professional and professional dancers, GO! combines dance and athletics to provide high energy and highly entertaining performances. GO!, a member of the Knoxville arts community, is known for blending contemporary ballet and modern dance with daring athleticism.

On October 1 and 2 at the Clarence Brown Theatre, GO! will present TRANSCENDANCE, an evening of contemporary and classical works featuring new works by GO! Artistic Director, core choreographers, and guest artist, Daniel Chait, as well as favorites from the GO! repertoire.

Artistic Director, Lisa McKee, will premier “The Fall,” a contemporary work exploring the fall of Adam and Eve, and “I’m Not What You Think,” a funky, fun jazz ballet. Daniel Chait, formerly of the American Ballet Theatre, and Twyla Tharp will present “Don’t Be Afraid,” a work focusing on one barefoot modern dancer amidst precision pointe work. Other new works will include “JOY!” choreographed by Denise Njuguna, “Turbine” by Darby O’Connor, and untitled works by Jill Frere and Julie E. Cox.

GO! will also revisit favorite works, including “Libertango Cafe,” “PulsE,” “Revivivication,” and “Architecture of Stillness” choreographed by Mark Lamb.

GO! is proud to partner with the Tennessee Arts Commission and Cathey & Co.  Sunday’s matinee is in partnership with Penny 4 Arts, enabling children in area counties to attend TRANSCENDANCE for ONE PENNY with the purchase of an adult ticket.
