If there's one thing those who pay even the slightest attention to live performance in Milwaukee know it is this: When the folks at Alverno Presents set their collective mind to bringing fantastical dance to our fair city, they do not mess around. They are focused, centered, maybe even a bit obsessive, but that's what it takes to get the best of the best here to stun and amaze us. To wit, the triumphant performance of Bill T. Jones' Serenade/The Proposition in 2010.
This season AP welcomes the Trisha Brown Dance Company on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 8:00PM. And I tell you, it's gonna be somethin' to write home and abroad about!
With work that spans over five decades, Trisha Brown has been churning out choreography that challenges both dancers and audiences, creatively telling the traditional dance world to get with it or die from an excruciating painful boredom of its own making. Just take a look at this excerpt of Planes (1968):
Yes, kids, you read that date right--twas choreographed in 1968. Well trained, off-their-nut rock climbers got nothin' on those dancers!
During the October 20 show, you'll be treated to a repertory mix, including her latest work I’m going to toss my arms – if you catch them they’re yours. Hear tell there'll also be a cameo appearance of sorts by local Latin sensations De la Buena, though in a different form then their usual. Shhhh, it's a surprise!
Don't wait to get your tickets, do it now or forever wallow in regret!
