The term “pony box” became a catch all phrase that means everything and anything…

Art + music + dance + theatre + film = Pony Box Dance Theatre.

This is the “about” introduction on the website of Pony Box Dance Theatre, a contemporary dance troupe out of Long Beach, “integrating all the arts to create dances with a social and political relevance,” founded by Jamie Carbetta Hammond.

Pony Box will be performing “Edge” at Pasadena’s Lineage Performing Arts Center on May 24th. The production has been hailed as edgy and sexy and is an L.A. Weekly “pick of the week.”

For one night only, experience the innovative works of Pony Box Dance Theatre with one debut and two electrifying performances. (Lineage Dance)

“Edge,” an intriguing new work inspired by the words of American poet and writer Sylvia Plath, explores the complexities of emotional connection featuring the all-male dance troupe of Pony Box Dance Theatre and guest female LA Ballet soloist, Sadie Black as Sylvia. In this work, the female character searches for connection with 5 different men, with varying degrees of success. She is alone, whether physically or emotionally, even in the company of many, unable to overcome her isolation and lack of freedom. (
