DANCE EXTRAVAGANZA TONIGHT @ THE THEATRE PROJECT

BLURRY LINES: New Works in Dance

WHEN: Thursday, June 21, 8 PM
WHERE:
Theatre Project, 45 West Preston Street, Baltimore
TICKETS: $12

BLURRY LINES compiles eclectic dance pieces that blur the lines between what is "pop"/"club" dance, "contemporary" dance and performance art. The evening is sure to aesthetically entertain and stimulate new perceptions of dance/performance on stage and in society.

BLURRY LINES includes new dance works by Claire Côté, Jake Dibeler, Isa Leal, Alex Licata, Caroline Marcantoni, Sigrid Lauren and Monica Mirabile.

Featured will be the group piece "Trans-Actions", recently premiered at the Ufer Studio in Berlin, Germany. Trans-Actions addresses the numerous ways our globalized, hybrid society participates in transactions; that is, giving and receiving information and money both virtually and inter-personally. It questions how these transactions affect us, revealing how we create a hybrid culture from these experiences. The music of SFTSTPS and choreography by Claire Côté in collaboration with the dancers reflects a hybrid form in that it mixes club music/dance with a "contemporary" and pedestrian quality.

The choreography is influenced by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and Beyonce Knowles.
