BMD Teams up with Jason and The Scorchers

VR

Bowen McCauley Dance (BMD) teams up with country-punk rock music legends Jason and The Scorchers, credited by Rolling Stone Magazine for “rewriting the history of rock-n-roll in the South,” to create Victory Road.

The world premiere of Victory Road takes place on April 10 and 11, 2015 at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Terrace Theater. The band joins BMD onstage for an electrifying performance about a boy who leaves his hometown with the dream of becoming a music star in the 1980s.

Featuring music from their deep collection, Lucy Bowen McCauley unites with Jason and The Scorchers to transform their songs into movement – a journey of hope, tragedy, and triumph set to the sounds of country, punk rock, hard rock, and country rock.

“The combination of earthy, lyric-driven, guitar-based live, country rock and the elegant movements of the Bowen McCauley dancers were irresistible.” – Buzz McClain, Senior Editor at George Mason University.

“Throughout my career I have always hoped that the music of Jason and The Scorchers would be set to dance. Our music is rooted in old Sothern folk, Celtic melodies, and first-wave punk rock, all of which are dance based. When Lucy approached me with the idea, it was an instant no brainer to jump aboard the train. In fact, it is what I have always wanted to see happen” says Ringenberg.

Lucy adds, “I have loved Jason’s music for many years. It is a wonderful honor to choreograph to his stunning songs and to work with such a disarmingly humble genius.”
