“The Better to Bite You  With”

LA Choreographers & Dancers celebrates 30 years with an innovative and interactive dance

performance featuring a fun dance/multimedia program for people of any age based on the world

popular tale "Little Red Riding Hood."  Inspired by new technology, the exciting production

includes computer x-rays that creator Louise Reichlin saw at her dentist's office.  Part of “The Reality

Series”, this new dance/media work turns to the theme of teeth, one of the most basic and important

parts of ours (and many animals') bodies.


"The Better to Bite You With" begins with a vaudevillian collage of mouths and toothbrushes. As

we enter the story line, we meet Li’l Red and her Mama Blue, we discover where she got her name

and the dilemma she has, a toothache to be precise. Sent to see her Grandmother who is to take

her to the dentist, Li’l Red must travel through a park where many different animals live. Afraid and

reluctant to go through, she dances with a flock of birds in front of the park. Later Li’l Red meets

the infamous Wolf, but the story builds to an unexpected and creative conclusion. This

sophisticated theatrical adventure is woven with technology, narration, music ranging from

Dixieland to King Crimson, and of course dance.


Our performers for this are Danielle Catone, Steven Nielsen, Sung-Yun Park,

Angelina Prendergast,  Kristin Rapinchuk, Louise Reichlin, and Emily Show.

Masks and an original set piece by Stephen Kwok. Costumes by Linda Borough.


Directed and choreographed by Louise Reichlin.

Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers presents:

Louise Reichlin & Dancers/ Dance At the Stone House


FREE. An interactive site specific work that uses audience participation to design a dance work based on the unusual architecture and art that is the Sun Valley Youth Arts Center. The name comes because of the unusual use of native river rocks set into the architecture and interior of the building. Built in 1925, the building, designated a City Cultural Historical monument has been transformed into a first-of-its-kind art education center in the East San Fernando Valley.


This is the third year the work is being performed and has  5 dancers & 80 participants/audience. Students from three schools are part of the interactive work: King Elementary School, Rockdale Elementary School, and Stonehurst Elementary School (4th - 6th grades).
