Barak Marshall's MONGER
July 7 - July 11, 2010
Intensely athletic dancing is heightened by surreal theatrical vignettes in Barak Marshall's refreshingly original MONGER. Marshall, the son of acclaimed dancer, choreographer, and musician Margalit Oved, is a former resident choreographer of Batsheva Dance Company and choreographs highly athletic, visual, and emotional movement. This arresting and entertaining work fuses contemporary dance with humorous character narratives inspired by Jean Genet's The Maids and Robert Altman's Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning film Gosford Park, and is set to an eclectic score with music by Balkan Beat Box, Handel, Verdi, and National Public Radio's The Yiddish Radio Project.
