This year Urban Artistry joins PDM, Public Displays of Motion lead by Peter DiMuro in a collaborative project for the Intersections Festival March 8 & 9 at 7pm in the Sprenger Theater at Atlas on H St. NE Washington DC.
FUTURE PRELUDES is part of the Atlas' INTERSECTIONS: A New America Arts Festival. Peter DiMuro and fellow dance artists Asanga Domask, Christopher K. Morgan, Urban Artistry and NOW A NEW ADDED STAR among the constellation: ANNA MENENDEZ will perform their specific forms and genres of dance (including Hula, Sri Lankan, urban dances of all kinds, flamenco, dance/theatre) to the music of Rachmaninoff. The show is a tribute to "firsts"- preludes being the key - as the 19th century pianists would improvise and "sample" from their own and others music as a warmup to their own concerts. We'll do the same with movement- borrowing from each other, and making these 21st century preludes for a glorious future of dance.
This is the debut event of PDM: Public Displays of Motion.
Two shows; March 8 and 9, 7pm.
