This weekend, a tanztheater performance staged by a Princeton University senior: “Liminal,” inspired by the lives of the author Pilar Castro Kiltz ’10, and her cast; with original music by Vince di Mura. Performances are April 23-24 and April 27- 28 at 8 p.m., plus Saturday, April 24 at 10:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 25, at 2 p.m. It takes place in the black box theater at 185 Nassau Street. Tickets needed; call 609-258-9220.
Then look at the compatibility of Judaism with modern dance, also with music by diMura. Sydney Schiff choreographed “Context Preconstructed” as “a profusion of psycho-somatic experiences from sarcasm to sex.” See it at the Patricia and Ward Hagan ’48 Dance Studio 185 Nassau Street on Thursday May 6, Friday May 7, and Saturday, May 8, all at 8 p.m. plus a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. Free and open to the public.
On May 29 and 30, Janell Byrne celebrates her 30th year with the Mercer Dance Ensemble.
Lots of dancing, some of it good, will be on view at Communiversity on Saturday, April 24. Look for me among the re-enactors from Princeton United Methodist Church. In support of the United Front Against Riverblindness, adult and child pairs from will wear “Ask Me About Riverblindness” signs and hand out brochures. To demonstrate what happens when an adult in the Democratic Republic of Congo goes blind — the child must leave school to tend the adult — the children will lead the adults, using poles. Call it guerrilla theater. The street fair runs noon to five, has so much to see and hear.
