Win Free Tix to “A Light Conversation” @ EMPAC this Friday

A Light Conversation @ EMPAC

This Friday and Saturday, EMPAC is presenting “A Light Conversation,” a dance performance featuring Brooklyn choreographer Wally Cardona and Swiss-born, London-based Rahel Vonmoos.

Light Conversation reflects on life being lived: choice, commitment, pleasure, sacrifice, boredom, aesthetics vs. ethics, the uncertainty of the future, and last but not least, love – first love, erotic love, marital love, mature love, and friendship.

The dancers inhabit a shifting environment of darkness and light, making sense of the ongoing change that is life. The audience, seated on three sides of the stage, often within only a few feet of the performers, shares the same intimate space.

It’s EMPAC, so you know it will be interesting, cutting-edge, and also fairly indescribable. Here’s Deborah Jowitt’s Village Voice review of a 2008 performance.

And here’s a clip:

    I haven’t gone to see many dance performances… so I’d love to have these tickets! Although I do remember one from one of the cruises I went on… it truly is a talent to be able to move your body in certain ways. Wish I had that flexibility!
