Wonderbound dance company's 'Gone West'
With its reputation for crowd-pleasing, cross-genre collaborations, Denver's Wonderbound dance company (formerly Ballet Nouveau Colorado) has become a reliable way to see ambitious new works. Its latest premiere, Gone West, continues this weekend with live music from acclaimed cellist and singer-songwriter Ian Cooke and Lighthouse Writers Workshop co-founder Michael J. Henry. The multimedia show, which press materials describe as “a cross between Shakespeare’s The Tempest and a ‘KOA campground,’ explores the spirit of the West with exuberant choreography from Garrett Ammon, Cooke’s music and Henry’s poetry. 7:30 p.m. April 12 and 2 p.m. April 13. Parker Arts, Culture and Events Center, 2000 Pikes Peak Ave. in Parker. $22-$47. 303-292-4700 or wonderbound.com.
