Camille A. Brown and Andrea Miller and Monica Bill Barnes and Kate Weare present two programs from August 9-14, 2010 at The Joyce Theater. 175 Eighth Avenue, NYC. Ms. Brown’s new ensemble and Ms. Miller’s company Gallim Dance share the first program. The second program features the Kate Weare Company and Monica Bill Barnes & Company. Tickets start at $10 and are available at 212-242-0800 or www.joyce.org.
Camille A. Brown will present four pieces, including three New York Premieres. "City of Rain" features music by Jonathan Melville Pratt. "Good and Grown" is a solo piece to music by Saycon Sengbloh (recently seen in Fela! on Broadway) and Wes Montgomery, featuring the visual art of Justin Morris. Ms. Brown also performs an as-yet-untitled duet with Juel D. Lane (formerly of Ronald K. Brown/Evidence) in a piece which premiered at Jacob’s Pillow last month. Inspired by the events of Hurricane Katrina, "New Second Line" (2006), a group work, is a celebration of the spirit and culture of the people of New Orleans. Dancers representing the spirits of ancestors who have passed on, in celebration of the strength of their descendants, follow the traditional brass band parades for weddings, social events, and funerals, called Second Line. The piece will feature the work of spiritual realism visual artist Moses Ball. Lighting design by Brenda Gray. Costume design by Carolyn Meckha Cherry.
Gallim Dance will present the World Premiere of "Wonderland", which employs images of war, sports, religion, and communication. The piece is a dark exploration of pack mentality – the psychological and physical episodes that occur when a herd acts as a unit through the uncoordinated behavior of self-serving individuals. "Wonderland" is inspired by Chinese visual artist, Cai Guo-Qiang’s work Head On created for Berlin. Lighting design by Vincent Vigilante.
