DCDC premieres a full-evening, large scale dance work called The Bench: Journey into Love (The Bench). The premiere will be held Saturday and Sunday, October 6 and 7, 2018 at Victoria Theatre.


About The Bench
By choreographer Kiesha Lalama, The Bench is a special performance work, incorporating original dance, song, music, and theatre – hence, a dance musical. The story of The Bench takes place around a seemingly ordinary, wooden park bench that mystically transforms into a symbol of love’s endurance and strength through life’s journey. A man and woman meet by a bench, fall in love, marry, and have a family. There are scenes of family comedy and challenges, such as the family dinner, the formidable bond between mother and daughter, and rivalry between siblings. The Bench is a testimony to love and family—even after death!  Purchase Tickets
