One Radio Host, Two Dancers

8 pm Saturday, June 21, Saturday June 21 | $41.50-$62.50
 
Ira Glass said it best: "We know nobody listens to my radio show thinking, 'You know what this needs, is some dancers. Nobody sits through a dance show thinking, 'You know what this needs, is a guy talking and playing clips of audio.'" But that's exactly what the host of This American Life does with this show, even though the dancing here has enough narrative on its own. (For one act, it will have no words.) The dancers, New York's Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass, aren't exactly the abstract, fluid contemporary types. They're more known for vaudevillian humor, using sparklers and batons, balancing chairs on their faces and bringing stories to life as costumed characters. The three performed the first ten minutes of the show during the annual Tibet House concert at Carnegie Hall last year, which Vanity Fair said was "the highlight performance."
