Park Avenue Armory Dance Commission 'FLEXN' to Begin 3/25Park Avenue Armory Dance Commission 'FLEXN' to Begin 3/25
by BWW News Desk - Feb 19, 2015

Park Avenue Armory has commissioned dance pioneer Reggie (Regg Roc) Gray and visionary director Peter Sellars to create a performance piece that evolves the tradition of flex, the Brooklyn-born street dance. Characterized by sharp, rhythmic contortion, pausing, snapping, gliding, bone-breaking, and animated showmanship, the flex form evolved from the Jamaican bruk-up style popular in the dance halls and reggae clubs of Brooklyn in the 1990s. Opening March 25 and marking the first major presentation of the Armory's 2015 artistic season, FLEXN transforms the dance from its individual, combative style to create a collaborative work of social commentary inspired by both personal experience and current events. A series of public discussions and education initiatives complement the presentation. (more...)

The University Musical Society Presents the Trisha Brown Dance Company, 2/21-22The University Musical Society Presents the Trisha Brown Dance Company, 2/21-22
by BWW News Desk - Feb 7, 2015

At 78-years old, post-modern choreographer Trisha Brown has established herself as one of the most influential choreographers of our time by articulating the extraordinary mechanics of everyday movement. Ann Arbor's relationship with Trisha Brown pre-dates the 1970 founding of Trisha Brown Dance Company; it was 1965 when Trisha Brown premiered 'Motor,' a work that involved Miss Brown, a Volkswagen Beetle, and a skateboard in the Maynard Street Parking Garage as part of the ONCE Festival. Trisha Brown's collaboration with contemporary visual art giants can not be understated, either: this tour showcases works with significant components created by Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Judd, Robert Ashley, and Laurie Anderson. This is an artist who made her mark pushing boundaries, an artist that we couldn't be prouder to present. (more...)
