Brooklyn Arts Exchange is kicking off the
first event of its 2006 "First Weekends New Performance
and Discussion Series" with a visit from the Mob.
Mob Productions, that is.
On Jan. 7 at 8 pm, the members of Mob won’t be breaking kneecaps - at least we hope not. These dancers will be exploring "the physicality of emotions that occur, moment by moment, in intimate relationships" - purely through movement.
Also on Saturday’s bill is an excerpt from "Mar Adentro (The Sea Within)," a new work by choreographers Alicia Diaz and Marion Ramirez. "The Sea Within" is a collaboration with Peruvian percussionist Sebastian Guerrero and former Pilobolus dancer Matthew Thornton.
The triple bill is complete with Milka Djordjevich’s "Four Women in Dresses," featuring dancers performing "a stylized critique of the subtle choreography of social life," set to the repetitive, mechanical brass music of the Boban Markovic Orkestar.
As with all "First Weekend" events, the audience is invited to participate in a discussion with the artists following this presentation of their works-in-progress.
The Brooklyn Arts Exchange is located at 421 Fifth Ave. at Eighth Street, in Park Slope. Tickets are $15. For reservations and more information, call (718) 832-0018 or visit the Web site at www.bax.org.
