onStage at Connecticut College Guest Artist Series
presents Big Dance Theater “The Road Awaits Us” and “Cage Shuffle"
Known for their inspired use of dance, music, text and visual design, Big Dance Theater weaves disparate strands of source material into multi-dimensional performances. A collaboration between renowned choreographer Annie-B Parson and performance artist Paul Lazar, Big Dance Theater has been presented around the world and won the first-ever Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award in 2007. Two works will be presented: The first is “The Road Awaits Us,” a dance-theater piece that reimagines the work of playwrights Eugene Ionesco and Anton Chekhov. The other is “Cage Shuffle,” a dance/theater solo that combines stories by John Cage with complex choreography in a performance that David Byrne described as “beautiful, profound and hilarious.”
