GIBNEY DANCE AND MONICA BILL BARNES & COMPANY PRESENT "HAPPY HOUR" ENCORE ENGAGEMENT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE WOMEN’S PROJECT AND THE JOYCE THEATER
Monica Bill Barnes & Company
Co-presented by Gibney Dance and Monica Bill Barnes & Company in partnership with
The Women’s Project and The Joyce Theater
Wednesdays, April 20–May 25 at 6:30 p.m.
Studio G at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center
Host Robbie Saenz de Viteri turns a downtown dance studio into an after-work office party complete with wall-to-wall carpeting, karaoke and dollar store decorations. Dressed in a pair of everyday men’s suits, performers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass crash the party playing two totally familiar guys who go to great lengths to win over the crowd. Every desperate attempt reveals how hilariously unsuited they are for the roles they insist on playing.
Come for the free drink, stay for the hope of a life-changing experience.
Happy Hour is made possible through the generous support of The Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
About Monica Bill Barnes & Company
Monica Bill Barnes & Company is a contemporary American dance company that brings dance where it does not belong. We create and produce each work entirely from its own rulebook—dancing to radio interviews on the biggest stages in the world, hosting a weekly show in a crowded office party, or leading a choreographed exercise routine in an art museum. Within each of these new contexts and borrowed environments, we constantly find humor in our awkward, everyday triumphs and failures.
The company consists of a team of collaborators – Artistic Director/Choreographer, Monica Bill Barnes, Associate Artistic Director/Performer, Anna Bass, designers Kelly Hanson (Set/Costume) and Jane Cox (Lighting) and our newest company member, Robbie Saenz de Viteri (Creative Producing Director).
