Since its inception, Collide has created 12 original full-length dance musicals that have engaged subjects as diverse as the Los Angeles race riots of the 1940s (Zoot Suit Riots), classic Shakespearean drama (Romeo & Juliet-2014 & 2020), prostitution and sex trafficking (Lot of Living to Do), bullying, coming-of-age journeys (Class of ’85), and female empowerment (Le Petit Moulin). We've also created comic farces (C.L.U), true stories (Dance ‘Til You Drop) and modern takes on classical stories (Dracula, The Great Gatsby and The Picture of Dorian Gray).
