Between The Lines continues the 22nd season of Dale Scholl Dance/Art with five original dance pieces based on contemporary novels and short stories. Company founder Dale Scholl contributes three and company dancer Joseph Candelaria and guest choreographer Paul Besaw each present a new work.

Author and illustrator Edward Gorey is the inspiration behind Scholl's choreography in the show. Perhaps best known for creating the opening animation of the PBS series Mystery!, Gorey wrote, illustrated or collaborated on hundreds of stories before his death in 2000. Scholl has interpreted three of his best in dance.

Scholl's "Woven Ecstasy" was inspired by Gorey's Les Passementaries Horribles, her "Two-Wheeled Time Machine" by his The Epiplectic Bicycle and her "Knock, Knock, Who's There" by his The Doubtful Guest. The accompanying music ranges from piano works by South Korean composer Dong Il Sheen to Ravel's "Bolero" to Scott Joplin rags.

Dancer Joseph Candelaria's choreographed "Somewhat Damaged," a loose interpretation of author Arthur S. Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha focusing on the novel's emotional aspects. The work is set to traditional Japanese music.

Guest choreographer Paul Besaw continues the literary theme with his "Veils On Wolfmother Wallpaper." The dance is a take on Tom Robbins Skinny Legs and All with world music, rock and bluegrass accompaniment. The eclectic musical mix contributes to the comical choreography.

Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors, $15 for CSUS students and $8 for children 12 and younger. They are available from the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at Tickets.com.
