"The bird has more friends than me" at Soaking WET
Curated by David Parker and produced by Jeff Kazin
Curator David Parker and Producer Jeffrey Kazin offer the 33rd iteration of this Upper West Side festival held in the West End Theater at the Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew.
Performances are 7:00 Thursday-Saturday and 2:00 on Sunday
Dancer/choreographer GARNET HENDERSON, lauded for her past appearances on Soaking WET, returns with her new work The bird has more friends than me, a dance of social posturing. Performed by Rebecca Hadley, Linden Hill, and Henderson, the work asks: "what assumptions do we make when we see three women together? What expectations do we have of their interactions? The trio evokes a long history of pop girl groups, along with the whispers of conflict that have always trailed those groups of successful women.
KAI KLEINBARD's (February 5th-7th) new dance has been inspired by his work with children. Set to a collage of music that includes Aphex Twin and Autechre, Kleinbard will create a character that tunes itself to the sights, sounds, smells and experience of being in a room of onlookers.
SPECIAL GUESTS: LESLIE PARKER, THE BANG GROUP -- February 4th only!
