Menagerie d'Arte -- A Surreal & Immersive Dance Experience
Dalia Carella Dance Collective
Drawn into the surreal, theatergoers become instant voyeurs of the macabre within the inspired cabaret and circus-like atmosphere of this immersive and interactive full-length dance theater production of “Menagerie d’Arte”. Created by Dalia Carella, international dance artist and Artistic Director of the Dalia Carella Dance Collective (DCDC), and Debbie D. Cartsos, stylist/designer/dancer and founder of D.Webb Designs, Menagerie d’Arte fuses theatrical dance styles from the 1920/30s cabarets of Berlin and Paris with contemporary and world dance, blending dark comedy with an avant garde flair. DCDC's collaboration with Ms. Cartsos, whose extensive design and styling artistry provides a sophisticated urban direction to the program, brings human fashion installations to life, merging the worlds of couture and dance. Within this collection of performance pieces, DCDC presents the world premieres of “Le Jardin”, (music by Andrew Bird) and “Game Show”, (music by Beats Antique), DCDC repertory works from 2009, and choreographies curated by Ms. Carella, from some of the finest world dance artists in New York City.
