Local Community, Live Music, Dance and Romance.
Emotions Physical Theatre presents “The Heart” a dance theater and live music adventure that explores romance. Remember the emotions rushing into your head the first time you felt your partner’s lips against yours. How about that first fight? What about the "one that got away?" “The Heart” takes a journey of romance and love lost, fights and deep friendships, commitment and catastrophe.
“The Heart” integrates popular music throughout the decades, local community members, live music, and contemporary dance. Choreographer Shawn Rawls says, “I want the audience to time travel with me to experience the battle for, and beauty of intimacy."

Emotions Physical Theatre presents “Clinically Happy,” a multi-media show that follows the participants of a clinical trial to discover the scientific root of happiness. Fusing athletic contemporary dance with film and props, choreographer Shawn Rawls has created an immersive theatrical experience that positions the viewer as a scientist and the dancers as case studies. Edgy duets test the limits of relational happiness while eloquent solos explore an elusive sense of inner solace. Dancers join in a stunning ensemble as the audience evaluates camaraderie verses competition. With humor and poignancy, Emotions Physical Theatre embarks on a journey to define the seemingly intangible roots of our collective desire for fulfillment and gut-wrenching laughter.
