Performance-The Breakers Retirement Apartments

Thursday December 14, 7pm

See Perceptual Motion Inc dancers in a fun filled performance!

Dances include Serpents, Corn Fed, and Cleanlinesss is Godliness.

The seductive Serpents mezmerizes the viewer with continuously evolving images reminiscent of snakes and lava lamps.

Corn Fed is a dance of the heartland, offering images of cornfields, family dinners and country cooking. The all-pervasive presence of corn in our lives, from cooking oil to ethanol gas to cosmetics, is summed up by the line “corn was everywhere and everything was corn.”

Cleanliness is Godliness is a lighthearted dance with some rather unorthodox cleaning ladies.

The Chicago Line, inspired by Pina Bausch, is a series of movements celebrating Chicago.

The program also includes a dance lesson (the waltz), and improvisations with the audience and dancers.
