Choreocopia, a festive dinner show brimming with food, dance, and song, will be presented two Sunday evenings, May 7 and 14, at 5:30 PM at the 418 Project in Santa Cruz. The performance features dance choreographed by Karl Schaffer and performed by dancers of MoveSpeakSpin, songs performed by the women's vocal ensemble Zambra, and a full dinner prepared by India Joze master chef Jozseph Schulz, all blended together to create a feast for the senses!

Audience members will enjoy light, luscious internationally-inspired courses created by star Chef Jozseph paired in surprising ways with imaginative and humorous dance pieces. Zambra will draw from their global repertoire to provide accompanying songs on the seasonal themes of springtime, food, love and mothers (May 14 is Mother's Day). The evening will culminate with a competition among three dancers that is a take-off on the TV cooking show, "Chopped," requiring dancers to improvise a routine on the spot using an assigned mystery kitchen prop, a dance movement, and a piece of vocal music.

New dance works include
- "Chopping Block," a rhythmic kitchen quartet
- "Top This Too," a vaudevillian duet with kitchen flair.
- "Recital of the Quantum Dots," a dance of patterns and light.
- "Blacks and Whites," about difference and symmetry
- "Whisked," a choreographic competition that is a take-off on the TV series "Chopped."

Celebrate with your mother! Tickets for either Sunday show will feature a Mother's Day discount of $5 for your mom's ticket.
