NOVEMBER 13TH, 7:30pm, Memorial Auditorium, Stanford University
The internationally acclaimed French choreographer and conceptual artist Jérôme Bel, enjoys a reputation as one of the coolest conceptual dance-makers working today. His ironic, anti-theatrical productions question the nature of dance and the dividing line between audience and performer. The Show Must Go On features a mix of the finest Bay Area professional dancers with untrained Stanford “civilians” (students, faculty and staff) in what the New York Times calls "a dance version of a group sing-along."
The 25-person cast includes such notables as former San Francisco Ballet principal Muriel Maffre, well-known Bay Area dancer and teacher Erik Wagner, Alonzo King LINES Ballet Dance Center co-director Robin Anderson, San Francisco choreographer and Steamroller artistic director Jesselito Bie, and Stanford Dance faculty Diane Frank (a former teacher in the Merce Cunningham Dance Studio) and Robert Moses (founder and artistic director of Robert Moses' Kin Dance Company).
