Take a 

 Closer Look 

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK is a highly visual and dynamic show where the audience gets to experience the full range Dianna’s talent as a performer. Five very disctinct characters come to life in a story told through characterization, Hip Hop dancing, clowning, miming, shadow play, contact juggling, and multimedia. 

 

ABOUT THE SHOW

 

Dianna David has just become a member her high school’s most elite dance group, the LOL Dance Crew, led by the overbearing and popularity-driven Heidi Stevens. Estrude de Bompoof is a quirky, unsuspectingly talented individual who has just arrived from the Philippines and is finding her way through a new high school in Canada. Dianna has been forced by her principal, Mr. Gratan, to show the new girl around school and help her fit in.

 

As a Canadian-born-Filipino, Dianna struggles to accept Estrude’s differences as anything but embarrassing. As an unlikely friendship forms, Dianna is forced to re-evaluate her perspective, as she is peer-pressured to putting Estrude in her place.
