On December 14, at 8pm EST (7pm Central), Misnomer Dance Theater will be broadcasting their final performance of BEING TOGETHER online. This performance is being presented at Joyce Soho in NYC and will include three new works, including Too Late Tulip, Rock. Paper. Flock., and Zipper, a show described by The New Yorker as “Wonderfully strange and unpredictable.” Misnomer was named one of the top ten dance performances for 2006 by The New York Times and as one of the “25 to Watch” for 2007 by Dance Magazine, and recently collaborated with Bjork on her video Wanderlust.
Swan Lake Samba girl recently reviewed the show on her blog, and says of choreographer Chris Elam’s work, “his movement language is so original, something I can’t say of many other choreographers… the creatures he creates can be funny, sad, pathetic, cute, always endearing.”
Here are some short video previews from Misnomer’s YouTube channel:
Good news regarding this special event…
On Dec. 14 you can pull up a computer, watch, and chat about this amazing event LIVE on the Dance Advantage companion network, Dance Advantage Interactive!
Events like this one are a wonderful opportunity for dance students to see live dance which they may not have the opportunity to see otherwise without leaving their own home. Misnomer’s work is accessible but highly creative and displays daring and inventive partnering work. I hope that you will tune in to witness this unique event and chat about your experience as it is happening. And, while you are there, I hope you will check out DA Interactive and join this new community of dancers, teachers, parents, and professionals.
I will be posting reminders on Twitter, so sign up to follow my “tweets.” To watch Misnomer Dance Theater on December 14 go to danceadvantage.ning.com. The show will be broadcast on the front page. Hope to “see” you there!
