The Girl With The Alkaline Eyes

The Girl with the Alkaline Eyes is a dance theater narrative from The Chase Brock Experience, a 70-minute thriller featuring a commissioned score and live music.

Power on. A developer toils through the night building a secret project: a woman, with circuitry instead of flesh and eyes that shine electric blue. But man and machine are connected by a deep desire that sparks an irreversible chain of lust, creation, and destruction.

“Chase Brock’s eclectic résumé includes Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark on Broadway, Roméo et Juliette at the Met, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. He is a showman with an eye to a wide audience, and the work he has created for his own company reflects his sentimental storytelling bent.” – The New York Times

“In this seventy-minute groundbreaking dance theater piece, we explore what really could be possible in the future, a proposed infiltration of artificial intelligence. Chase Brock’s choreography is incredibly specific, creating clear patterns for living that need no dialogue or further explanation. The specificity of the dance, mixed with Brock’s theatrical staging and heartfelt storytelling, sweeps you away on this journey. Combined with Eric Dietz’s moving original score, performed live by a trio helmed by Rob Berman, the complexities of emotion and machine are effortlessly mixed to follow the shocking twists this story takes.” – Theatre is Easy

“The members of The Chase Brock Experience are, indeed, attractive and also mighty good dancing actors, perfect performers for Brock’s psychological and emotional work, his most complex work as a modern dance concert choreographer. Eric Dietz wrote the intriguing, cliché-free scenario as well as composed the elegant classical style score, brilliantly choreographed, leading to a denouement that is staged with beautiful simplicity, reminiscent of the ending of Jordan Harrison’s Marjorie Prime, another work dealing with cyborgs and emotional memories.” – TheaterScene
