Howdy, everyone! Many of you have asked when Monkeyhouse will be performing again in the Boston area. Well, I am very excited to announce that we will be presenting two pieces, something new and one of our best loved works, Mourning After/Ululation, at AWAKE: Moving Dance Forward on April 10, 2010 at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge.
AWAKE is more than just a dance concert featuring works by Eric Cruz, Monkeyhouse, and David Parker and the Bang Group, however. It is a day long event that celebrates the lives of three dance legends: Michael Jackson, Pina Bausch, and Merce Cunningham with a series of Master classes, panel discussions, a documentary film, catered meals, and a dance party.
As the Artistic Director of AWAKE, I really hope that you will be able to join us. Over the next two weeks, Connect to Choreography will feature several posts about this project and the artists involved in it.
