Earth is left behind as dancers explore outer space in a theatrical performance that actually started out as an idea for a theme party.

Choreographer Colleen Hooper presents "An Outer Space Project" at the BRIC Studio June 9-11.

"Everyone has thought about outer space at one point in their life," said Hooper, who lives in Park Slope. "This is a mix between a live concert and an imaginative take on outer space."

The performance is set in the frame of a dream, following one of the three dancers as her imagined journey through outer space appears on stage. Hooper said the movements were inspired by astronaut training programs and outer space phenomena, like sun flares and constellations.

Dancers will move to live music performed by Metric Mile, which Hooper described as "instrumental melodic pop with a dose of modern technology."

"Outer Space Project" will be performed June 9-11 at 8 pm at BRIC Studio (57 Rockwell Place at Fulton Street in Fort Greene). For more information and ticket reservations, call (917) 622-4751 or visit
