For the March 12 anniversary of Broadway theatres shutting down due to COVID19, local performer/director/choreographer Elliott Mattox debuted a new video recorded at the United Palace featuring dancers who have been out of work for a year. Their shows include: “Diana,” “Sing Street,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” and “MJ” as well as “Beetlejuice,” “Frozen,” and “Mean Girls,” which have closed.
“I wanted to celebrate folks in Broadway shows that either never got the chance to open or that closed too soon,” Mattox said. “And we are still waiting to get back to what was interrupted.”
Elliot’s original choreography for the piece, called “right where you left me,” evokes the magic of artistic movement and collective gathering, both of which have been largely missing for the past year.“This piece is for everyone who has felt stuck during this time,” he said. “You aren’t alone. And here’s looking forward to not being stuck any more.”
The project was supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
