Or, what happens when Sally meets Sondheim.
NOTICE: Event begins promptly at 8PM and there will be no late entry.
As “our favorite queen of the intelligent quirk” (New York Times) — the radical (& iconoclassical) choreographer Sally Silvers — presents her first large group piece since 2009. After decades of her wild, post-Judson experimentation (& after 5 years dancing for Yvonne Rainer), award-winning ‘downtown’ choreography springboards into the witty, wistful sophistication of the Broadway stage. In an extreme mash-up, Silvers puts synchronized swimming, martial arts, roller derby, children’s games, billiards, ice dancing & other instructional material into the mix at Roulette’s gorgeous new Brooklyn space. With a half-dozen Stephen Sondheim musicals as a focus for her madcap lens of off-kilter, playful, inventive dance, BONOBO MILKSHAKE makes for a sexy fresh species of movement art.
Starring an ensemble of 7 dancers (Aaron Draper, Elisa Osborne, Miriam Parker, Jeremy Pheiffer, Veraalba Santa, Christopher Williams & Silvers) joined by “swing cast” dancers Edisa Weeks, Jonathan Kinzel, Carolyn Hall, Rebekah Windmiller, Dylan Crossman, and Daniel Madoff and the beguiling Obie winning actor, David Greenspan. Original soundscape & text by Bruce Andrews, paired with experimental composer, Michael Schumacher. Costumes by Elizabeth Hope Clancy and lighting by Kathy Kaufmann.
