*David Neumann / Advanced Beginner Group
*I Understand Everything Better*
THURS-SAT • FEB 23-25 • 8PM
Hepburn Teaching Theater, Goodhart Hall
Bessie-Award winning choreographer/performer David Neumann explores our
impulse to report on calamity. A multidisciplinary dance-based performance,*I
Understand Everything Better *is a deeply 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.
Comp tickets are at the box office before the show, please mention being a
"friend of BMC."
