--Mesilla Valley Dance Collective from Las Cruces and Human Nature Contemporary Ballet from El Paso are bringing a creative and collaborative dance showcase to the Black Box Theater on July 14th and 15th, 2018.

It allows companies like Mesilla Valley Dance Collective and Human Nature Contemporary ballet to showcase pieces from previous shows that have not been seen in many years. It will also preview of a piece from the upcoming Mesilla Valley Dance Collective show in February choreographed by Janessa Player.

"Genuine kindness - the type that isn't coated in mawkishness or undercut with irony - is about as rare in the theater as a talking cat. Kenny Finkle's Indoor/Outdoor has both - it's the improbable story of a kitten who follows the path of so many heroes by leaving home to find herself. It is also a clever, big-hearted comedy that makes it easy to feel good. Indoor/Outdoor is less about cats than about glorious, permanent love." - Mark Blankenship, Variety
