Dancers, Hooray!

Friday night after the staged reading we will be graced by the lovely and fabulous Brookes and Company Dancers performing a piece entitled Used to be Gorgeous:

USED TO BE GORGEOUS: Five conflicting selves engage the traditional confines of performance with contemporary albeit unsettling solutions.  Antagonistic partnering dismantles the troupe, and soloists expose their physical limitations striving to fill an inhuman negative space. They rend the space with distorted, ballet-infused burlesque movements. They exhaust and destroy themselves in an attempt to impress an evanescent audience. The viewer is presented with entertainment that questions acceptable forms of pleasure.
