Take A Trip Back -to NY in the 1960's - happening NEXT MONDAY 8/6
As part of the Baggage Project, which we began showing in 2011 with "Woman Sleeping" and "Tap Dance Widows Club", I have been planning a dance based on Patti Smith's "Just Kids" since almost the beginning. The theme of the Baggage Project has to do with how when some one dies you are close to, you continue to carry that person with you because of the love and support that was part of that relationship - baggage in a good way, that helps illuminate areas that may still be undefined. We will be doing the actual premier of some of the works from the series on November 16-18 at the Miles Playhouse. But first...coming up on MONDAY AUGUST 6, 2012 at 7:30 pm, we are showing a new work from the series in progress at MAX 10 at the Electric Lodge in Venice.
I hope you can come--- there will be 10 artists each with 10 minutes to try out some new work - and for $10 at the door (no advance sales) you get to see all of us as well as a free reception with beer, wine, and snacks after the performance. And free parking. For me it is a great way to see my work on stage and talk to people about it afterwards. We have 8 of our dancers performing!! Besides the new work we will also be doing the effervescent concluding dance from 'Tap Dance Widows Club' called 'Brandenburg" with its multiple styles from the film the work has become, worked into the contemporary fabric of our live dancers.

The Electric Lodge- 1416 Electric Avenue, Venice CA 90291.
