Also on the program are a few of Brock’s lighter pieces, including “Slow Float” and “Curious Episode,” a duet that teasingly fiddles with the contrasts between jazz and classical forms, echoing Claude Bolling’s playful “Baroque and Blue.” ”

The program’s second piece, Curious Episode, depicts another form of life caricatured on stage. The exaggerated gestural choreography creates the sensation of flipping through a comic book. Chase Brock succeeds in choreographing a contemporary interpretation of playful patterns found in a classically stylized score.”

Brock’s first piece, Curious Episode, shoots a breath of fresh air over the audience as Assistant Artistic Director Ashley Eichbauer and company member Erica Furst frolic about the stage in a playful duo, their quirky personalities competing with their not overly forceful display of technique for a splendid “encounter.” ”
