Extraordinary Moves: Express Your Inner Feiffer Dancer
A live “dance-in” – Release your inner Dancer while Jules Feiffer creates new cartoons joined by dancer Andrea Weber and live music by Jane Ira Bloom.
All ages welcome!
The Dancer Films is a collection of very short films based on Jules Feifferʼs beloved cartoon character, the modern Dancer. Director Judy Dennis translates six of Feifferʼs memorable cartoons−A Dance to Spring, A Dance to Art, A Dance to Summer, A Dance to the Loss of Innocence, A Dance to the New Year, and A Dance to the End of Summer−from the page to the soundstage, alchemizing drawing into dance for film. Brought to life by Merce Cunningham Dance Company dancer Andrea Weber, the Dancer is an icon to optimism and earnestness as she dances to celebrate a cycle of seasonal, emotional and political milestones. Produced by Ellen and Judy Dennis. Choreography by Susan Marshall and by Larry Keigwin, and original music by Jane Ira Bloom.
