Catherine Cabeen and Kristina Berger present "Glitter in the Gutter"
Catherine Cabeen and Kristina Berger
Glitter in the Gutter is an intimate evening of bawdy dance-theater created and performed by Catherine Cabeen and Kristina Berger. Performances are Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, at 7pm, at Pangea, 178 Second Avenue (between 11th and 12th Streets), in Manhattan.
The program opens with Cabeen's humorous, interactive solo Ready, Aim... This playful close look at the deluge of crotch flashes in contemporary dance invites the audience to literally take aim at Cabeen with rounds of crumpled-up colored paper.
Cabeen and Berger's Glitter in the Gutter, described by Exploredance.com as “a wonderfully incisive comedic duet with choreography, text, and luminous performances by Cabeen and Berger,” embodies both glamour and grit, weaving together the lives of two aging performers.
The program also includes Berger’s Threshold, a contemplative solo that explores the space between identities, with live music by jazz pianist Greg Woodsbie.
Catherine Cabeen and Kristina Berger have been collaborating on making humor their passport through life since 2013. Cabeen makes work that celebrates the body as a site of subversion and power. She is a former member of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, the Martha Graham Dance Company, and Richard Move’s MoveOpolis! She is currently the director of her own performance company, Hyphen, and an assistant professor at Marymount Manhattan College. Berger is an international artist whose career ranges from circus showgirl to principal dancer with the Erick Hawkins Dance Company to assistant professor at Dean College in Massachusetts.
