I Understand Everything Better
THURS-SAT . FEB 23-25 . 8PM
Hepburn Teaching Theater, Goodhart Hall 

Purchase tickets here <http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2579509> .

Bessie-Award winning choreographer/performer David Neumann explores our
impulse to report on calamity. A multidisciplinary dance-based performance
inspired by the death of his father, I Understand Everything Better is a
deeply felt and moving work that intersperses elements of Noh theater,
video, music and text and blurs the lines between truth and fiction. Topics
merge-the private and public, internal and external, the known and
unknown-resulting in a mysteriously beautiful mix of indelible images that
dance upon the contradictions of human life. 

The presentation of David Neumann / Advanced Beginner Group-I Understand
Everything Better is made possible by the New England Foundation for the
Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke
Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
