The Ice House Danceth


GroundWorks Dancetheater returns to Akron's Ice House tonight with a little help from its friends. The troupe's eighth annual program — which runs during the next two weekends — features the Akros Contemporary Percussion Collective, a six-piece group of local drummers that bangs away to Julio Estrada's Eolo'oolin. GroundWorks dances to Latitude, a piece written by Kent native Hal Walker that premiered a couple months ago at Cain Park. The showpiece, however, is the area debut of Heart and Vine, a Latin jazz-themed collaboration with music director Gustavo Aguilar. Playful, squawking sax sounds and modern electronics spice things up.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 8. Continues through Sept. 17
