“One of the wittiest young choreographers around. She can stir your heart as well as make you laugh.”—The Village Voice
Monica Bill Barnes’s work is an impressive combination of choreographic imagination, intellect and humor. Her dances have the brilliant ability to pull at your heartstrings in one moment and laugh out loud the next. Her new work, Everything Is Getting Better All the Time, is an outrageous and whimsical evening of dance. Borrowing from the glamour of rock concerts, the goodwill of a Little League game and the enthusiasm of a high school marching band, four dancers blend explosive movement and familiar gestures to create distinct characters with a lot of heart and a touch of grit.
Free preperformance talks with dance critic Debra Cash 30 minutes prior to performances in the ICA lobby.
Free postperformance Q&A with the company: Friday, January 20.
