Where The Wild Things Are: Arts House Goes Savage

Powerful, yet poised. Gritty, yet graceful. Tenacious, yet tamed. The cast of Arts House Dance Company invaded the veins of Philadelphia to rule the city like a new tribe of the Amazon. To complete their armor, makeup artists Perren Carrillo (C’19), Rebecca Lambright (C’19) and Cindy Ngo (C’18) made them look as ethereal as possible. Highlighter and glitter captured whatever light streamed underground and accentuated bone structure. Pushing their faces to the extreme gave the tribe their “otherworldly” look.

Yet, AH knows more than just how to strike a pose. Founded in 1985, the student-run and choreographed dance group performs jazz, contemporary, ballet, tap and hip-hop. To see AH’s fierceness in motion, check out their fall production, Arts House Dance Company and Penn Masala Present: Savage on Nov. 18 and 19 at the Iron Gate Theatre.
