David Dorfman Dance-'Aroundtown'
Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017
“Aroundtown” is a kinetic poem that examines the varied, unique and sometimes divided notions of LOVE—its meaning, purpose and platform. With original music, text and visuals, the work explores commitment, community and intimacy in times of violence and strife. DDD's trademark empathy, sly humor and bombastic physicality are harnessed to examine LOVE as both sociopolitical and intimate interactions.

A wild road trip through our American landscape—in a play made as one of America’s greatest artists, Robert
Rauschenberg, might have conceived it if he had been a playwright instead of a painter: a collage of people and places and music
and dancing, of love stories and picnics and business schemes and shootings and chicken jokes and golfing, and of the sheer exhilaration of living in a country where people make up their lives as they go.
Tickets: $15; Seniors: $6; Students: $6; Military: $6 (General Admission)
