MADCO: Momentum this weekend!
MADCO picks up speed in Momentum this Friday and Saturday, March 22 and 23, by performing the work of some of the nation's hottest choreographers, including Gina Patterson (Austin, Texas) and Janice Garrett (San Francisco). They give audiences a taste of what's happening in dance across the country.
If you missed it at New Dance Horizons this fall, this is your chance to see Patterson's "Second Line" with live music featuring Brian Casserly, Tony Esterly, Joe Pastor and Matt Murdick.
Choreographer and dancer Joseph Mills - formerly of MADCO and MOMIX - is set to perform "Circle Walker,“ described by the New York Times as "a new-age icarus flips and flies into space propelled by and propelling a giant, gyroscopic sculpture… there is a yearning for unbounded flight here that is visionary.”
And in a bittersweet celebration, MADCO bids farewell to Lindsay Hawkins, assistant rehearsal director and a dancer with the company for more than a decade. Congratulations to Lindsay for being accepted to the University of Arizona's graduate program in dance. Don't miss her last performance!
And new this year are MADCO: Matinees. On Saturday, March 23, at 2 p.m., a one-hour performance hosted by Artistic Director Stacy West, allows people of all ages to enjoy a shorter version of the concert and interact with the dancers - all in MADCO's audience-friendly style. Matinee seats are only $15.
