Known across the world for their “brilliant mix of miracle of skill” and “virtuoso physicality,” PHILADANCO! makes a short return to Cincinnati 10 years since their last visit. The Jefferson James Contemporary Dance Theater Series (newly renamed since CDT’s merger into Mutual Dance Theatre and Arts Centers) welcomes the 51-year-old legendary dance company who celebrates and preserves predominantly African American traditions in dance. Do not miss this repertory concert chock-full of both old and new favorites, featuring choreography by Francisco Gella, Ray Mercer, Tommie-Waheed Evans, and Anthony Burrell (subject to change).

PULP and VARIATIONS IN A BRAINSTORM Runs Nov. 12-20

MDT_Pulp and Variations logoPULP and VARIATIONS IN A BRAINSTORM
Mutual Dance Theatre
Nov. 12-20
Mutual Arts Center [Hartwell]

In PULP, as you surround the performers in Mutual Arts Center’s black box studio, you will first begin by helping to choose a unique sequence of events that will never again be performed in that same order. You and other fellow audience members will simultaneously perceive a common object, but interpret it differently as perspective is weighed in pithy moments.

In VARIATIONS IN A BRAINSTORM, letters, writings, and musings — all tied to a writing desk — will guide you through a tour of divergent identities. In the end, both adventures unearth the human mind’s vast ability to make connections.
