Trash Dance (NYC)
Trash cans and pogo sticks, broken ladders and windowpanes. Pace gets three days of JUNK as the Schimmel Theater presents the experimental dance-theatre on March 6–8.
Bringing new meaning to “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” Pace’s Schimmel Theatre is proud to present Brian Sanders' JUNK: Patio Plastico Plus with three shows on March 6–8 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the ongoing Pace Presents season.
Experimental dance-theatre company JUNK, formed by MOMIX alumnus, Brian Sanders, is known for its ingenious use of found objects and clever inventions that bridge the gap between dance and physical theatre. Sanders’ choreography blends traditional dance theatre with an inventiveness and physicality that gives reason for critics to hail JUNK as “Philly’s most imaginative perpetrator of dare-devilish physical theatre” and declare Sanders as “the city’s most exciting choreographer.” Patio Plastico Plus maintains JUNK’s choreographic style, as much of the choreography uses found objects–from trash cans and pogo sticks to broken ladders and windowpanes. The dancers perform with these props and set pieces in unforeseen ways of clever invention.
Part of the Spring Into Dance series featuring six critically-acclaimed dance companies at the Schimmel, other performances include Israel Galvan’s LA CURVA flamenco on March 13–14; breakdancing, ballet, and modern dance infusing RUBBERBANDance Group on March 20–22; ABT Studio Company on March 28; Taylor 2 on April 24–26; and From the Horse’s Mouth on May 30–June 1.
$5 student tickets and $15 faculty and staff tickets for each event can be purchased in advance at the Schimmel box office. For more information, visit http://schimmel.pace.edu/.
