KAROLE ARMITAGE presents “Art of the In-Between” performed by Armitage Gone! Dance
KAROLE ARMITAGE / Armitage Gone! Dance
Renowned choreographer and “punk ballerina” Karole Armitage and her company, Armitage Gone! Dance, present Art of the In-Between, a riotous celebration of Mexico’s rich mixture of Indigenous and European cultures. The evening opens with Día de los Muertos, a subversive comedy of screwball surrealism featuring a gang of dancing skeletons. Donkey Jaw Bone follows, taking inspiration from Lucha Libre, Mexico’s theatrical wrestling form that sits between ritual and parody, politics and spectacle.
The music for Día de los Muertos will include selections from Wyclef Jean, Fats Waller, Terry Dame, and New York no–wave punk bands, while Lucha Libre will feature music played on traditional Mexican instruments that predate the arrival of Christopher Columbus, breaking down the divide between present and past in a show that throws restrictive dividing lines to the winds.
