In an effort to keep myself organized and others aware I want to detail some dance performances worth catching that are going on in the next week. I'll report back on the good, the bad, and the stuff I was mad I paid to see.
Megan Springer's "...within us" is going on now until May 24th at PS 122. Everything I've read about this work tells me that the dancers will be all about getting up in peoples faces. I'll be there Friday feeling the excitement that only comes when art literally invades my personal space. Tickets $20, $15 for students and seniors and people who are no longer students but plan on milking their IDs for as long as possible. Refer to the youtube link for a sneak peak.
Wednesday will find me at Dance Theater Workshop watching John Jasperse Company perform "Becky, Jodi and John" a remount of a work created by three friends who also happen to be some of the most interesting choreograpahers/dancers/performers working today. Post show talk with Tere O'Connor should be good as well, if you like having fun and learning things that is.
Depending on the intricacies of La Guardia Airport, I will hopefully find myself downtown at Judson Church for Movement Research's weekly Monday night performance series on June 1st at 8pm. I'm most excited to see the work of Anna Sperber whom I dutifully internet stalked after hearing that she would be a Sugar Salon choreographer setting/creating work on the lovely ladies of the Barnard College Dance Department.
What are you seeing?
