Deborah Slater Dance Theater - 'Furniture Dances'

Event has passed (Thu Apr 28, 2005 - Sat Apr 30, 2005)


Art of the Matter and ODC Theater present Deborah Slater Dance Theater April 28, 29, 30. Deborah Slater has brought together a deeply talented and extremely diverse group of individuals to perform ‘Furniture Dances,’ an evening of dances, music, and text created on or in relation to furniture, celebrating twenty five years of art making at Slater’s acclaimed performance lab, Studio 210.‘Furniture Dances’ takes its name from an Eric Satie anecdote. He once described his now famous Gymnopédies (three short works, originally for piano) as “Furniture Music,” i.e. intended to be heard in the background (read: wallpaper). That the works are among his most identifiable, virtually his signature sound, is in keeping with Satie’s own bizarre wit and eccentric countenance. Expect the unexpected – tap dance sensation John Kloss, Patricia Jiron, and former Meredith Monk / Cirque do Soleil singer Dina Emerson join Slater and her company in a visit to some Slater classics and a host of new works.
