Conceived and directed by Tina Croll and James Cunningham, From the Horse's Mouth celebrates "the heart and history of dance" with renowned dancers and choreographers of all ages and traditions, performing together to tell their extraordinary personal stories. Performed across the US with locally and nationally known artists, the performance tells stories ranging from humorous to poignant--revealing moments of loss, joy, frustration, and triumph in a celebratory "dance reunion". Executive Director of The Dance Complex Peter DiMuro adds, "From the Horse's Mouth brings together a microcosm of our community here in Boston and at The Dance Complex in all its splendid and authentic diversity."
More than 20 dancers will participate, including Jordan Jamil Ahmed, De Ama Battle, Olivier Besson, Sean Bjerke, Adriane Brayton, Ryan Casey, Juliette Cusick, Danielle Davidson, Alexander Davis, Eleanor Duckworth, Brian Feigenbaum, Thelma Goldberg, Adrienne Hawkins, Molly Hess, Claire Johannes, Karen Klein, Jennifer Lin, Lynn Modell, Kat Nasti, Marsha Parilla, Margot Parsons, McKersin Previlus, Papa Sy, Fatou-Carol Sylla, Tony Williams, Cathy Young, and other special guests.
