Solo Dance Work Choreographed and Performed by Kara Nolte
Running time: 30 minutes
"Never before have we gotten goosebumps from a Backstreet Boys song as we did in this show."
"Nolte is a highly skilled contemporary and modern dancer. Her choreography translates words into emotions and movement with wicked perfection."
"Raw details...take aux.la.more to an elevated level of connection. Nolte has a knack for beauty and poetry. She creates romance, nostalgia and melancholy with the unleashing of a smile, the drop of a wrist, the droop of her head and renditions of cheesy karaoke songs."
"Nolte...filled the whole room with a cloud of love."
“aux.la.more is short and sweet and THE feel good show of this Fringe."
