The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes, a new evening-length dance piece from The Chase Brock Experience (CBE), has found its leading man. Spencer Ramirez will perform the feature role of Oliver, an impressive young coder in a high-tech lab who has been hard at work on a secret project.
The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes is choreographed by Chase Brock (Be More Chill) for his Brooklyn-based company, CBE. The world-premiere production features an original score by Eric Dietz and will play at Theatre Row December 28–January 13, 2019.
In The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes, Oliver is working on Co, an extraordinarily life-like creation that will change not only the life of his creator, but the lives of everyone around him.
Completing the cast will be longtime CBE member Yukiko Kashiki (The King and I on the West End, Disney’s The Lion King in Germany and The Netherlands) as Co and CBE’s Travante S. Baker as Troy, the owner of the lab. CBE dancers Jane Abbott, James Koroni (Jonah Bokaer Choreography), and Amber Barbee Pickens (Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour) will perform in soloist roles.
CBE founding member Ryan Jackson (Broadway’s Wicked and The Lion King) will stand by for the male roles, and CBE’s Courtney Ortiz (Finding Neverland) will stand by for the female roles.
The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes will be performed live on a piano/Roli Seaboard, violin, and cello with pre-recorded electronics (including Siri).
The production will feature scenic design by Drama Desk nominee Jason Sherwood (The View Upstairs), costume design by Drama Desk nominee Loren Shaw (Restoration Comedy), lighting design by Drama Desk nominee Brian Tovar (Tamar of the River), and projection design by Brock’s Be More Chill collaborator Alex Basco Koch.
The show is made possible by a commissioning grant from The O’Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation and has been developed through a Resident Fellowship at The Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU.
