Pride@DMAC

Join us for a week long Pride celebration filled with  theater, art, music, film and dance performances.  This week long celebration will be part of Pride Goes East.

Monday June 22nd  8 PM
An open house with Pride events on all three floors of DMAC, including, dance, film, video. Featuring SHOWDOWN David Parker and The Bang Group’s new dance set to many of the songs featured in the score of Irving Berlin’s musical-comedy classic, Annie Get Your Gun. Working with the beautiful, and rarely heard, recordings made by Judy Garland and Howard Keel for the 1949 MGM film version of the Broadway show (with Garland eventually replaced by Betty Hutton), Parker takes the songs out of their original narrative context and releases them into a contemporary choreographic world. Show Down unravels the venerable musical’s themes of a show down between the sexes, the lure of show business and the juncture of love and ambition with freewheeling vigor. These are themes which have long fascinated Parker and he sends his eight dancers swirling, thudding, rolling and rollicking through barefoot tap dances, sinuous partnering and potent competition dances with gusto. Parker treats the score seriously as music and poetry and yet allows humor to bubble up inevitably through his meticulously crafted dances. Amber Sloan most closely embodies the character of Annie with Nic Petry as her eager male counterpart. They are joined by Bang Group stalwarts Jeffrey Kazin, Bryan Campbell, Terence Duncan, Megan Flynn, Marissa Palley and David Parker in a special singing and tap dancing role in which, joined by Jeffrey Kazin, the virtues of an Old Fashioned Wedding are extolled.

In the studio, Carlos Velazquez " exhibit A: (walking) in the rain..." explores a relationship in which are not set roles, no men or a woman, but two human beings with interest in common.

In our gallery, a newly curated exhibit of international video works dealing with LGBT themes featuring the works of David Rios Ferriera. A complimentary reception follows event.
