"Propaganda," a new piece for the evening-length production of POP DEMO, performed by the University of Houston's UH Dance Ensemble in April 2022.  

Choreography by Toni Leago Valle

Costumes by Judy Masliyah

 

 

Celebrating Artistic Director Toni Leago Valle's 20th anniversary as a choreographer, 6 Degrees premieres  "POP DEMO" an original evening-length dance performance set in an immersive “Speakeasy” setting, at MATCH, October 2023.  "POP DEMO" views the historical use of propaganda through the lens of political cartoons in a live 3-D experience of contemporary dance, aerial dance, theatre, and visual projections. Through 60’s Pop Art costume designs by Judy Masliyah, lighting by Hudson Davis, and music by George Heathco, “Pop Demo” creates the surreal world of political cartoons.

 

Join 6 Degrees in the premier of "POP DEMO" a historical perspective through political cartoons of how the ideas of popular democracy, extremism, and propaganda have shaped and warped American political and cultural beliefs, ultimately attempting to overthrow democracy.

 

POP ART never looked so good.
