Under the guidance of director M. Bevin O’Gara, we aimed to make this production of Bat Boy a grittier, more realistic look at a community persecuting a scapegoat for his physical differences. The choreography, accordingly, was rooted in realism rather than camp, particularly in the Act II number “Children, Children,” which was a Greek-inspired contemporary dance celebrating young love.
