The Wallis Presents the U.S. Premiere of Debbie Allen’s Freeze Frame

Published by:

Debbie-Allen

The passion and pain of Freeze Frame will burst onto the stage in a fusion of dance, music, film and theater for four performances only on February 5 – 7 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. Written, directed and choreographed by three-time Emmy Award-winner Debbie Allen, Freeze Frame takes audiences on a rollercoaster ride through some of LA’s toughest streets where gangs, poverty, violence, and drugs are an everyday reality. With original music by Stevie Wonder,

James Ingram, Ricky Minor, Arturo Sandoval and Thump, Freeze Frame is a dance-driven narrative that will reframe the conversation about violence in America.

In addition to the public performances, there will be a gala benefit performance of Freeze Frame on Thursday, Feb 4 to be followed by an onstage Architects of Change panel conversation on violence in America hosted and presented by Maria Shriver and Allen as part of Shriver’s ongoing Architects of Change: The Conversation Series, aimed at opening hearts and minds to affect positive impact in the world. All Gala proceeds to benefit the Debbie Allen Dance Academy and Arts Education for the young people of the Greater Los Angeles area and America.

“The opportunity to spur social change is at the heart of not only Freeze Frame but also my own artistic core,” said Debbie Allen. “Maria Shriver and I know that to affect real positive change in the violence and mental health problems in this country we must engage in constructive dialogue. The many voices in Freeze Frame bring to life the stories of those most affected by violence and provide a lens through which audiences can be a witness, see themselves in the picture and consider how to make change.”

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Debbie Allen and producing the Architects of Change conversation to bring about social change through dance, theater and thought-provoking conversation,” said Maria Shriver. “It’s our hope that this conversation and production will make people stop, think, reflect, and inspire them to take part in the larger national conversation and become part of the solution.”

“It is important for us, as well as a privilege to present Freeze Frame and the Architects of Change: The Conversation Series at The Wallis, supporting both Debbie Allen, an artist and commentator on the world in which we live, and Maria Shriver, whose journalism and activism seek to inspire social change,” said Paul Crewes, the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts’ new Artistic Director who takes the reins full time in April 2016. “This critical work and the issues it debates are particularly relevant at this time in America.”

Freeze Frame will have four performances: Friday & Saturday, Feb 5 & 6 at 8PM, Saturday, Feb 6 at 3PM, and Sunday, Feb 7 at 12PM. For more information, visit TheWallis.org

The Gala Benefit Performance and panel discussion will be Thursday, Feb 4 beginning at 5:30PM.

The rich and smooth mix of hip-hop, soul, gospel and R&B is led by Ricky Minor, who was the music director for American Idol, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Super Bowl and the Grammy Awards. He has also worked on tour with Whitney Houston, Alicia Keyes, Christina Aguilera, Ray Charles and Beyoncé. Audiences will be moved by the dance, the amazing voices and the indescribable true story of how art, dance, music and hope are able to transform lives.
