Described as “one of the wittiest young choreographers around” Monica Bill Barnes returns to Durham for her company’s first solo concert on the ADF stage. Her all female company has been celebrated for its hilarious works that celebrate the joys of individuality, comedy, and the idea that “all the world’s a stage.” They will perform an ADF commissioned world premiere, a duet between Anna Bass and Monica Bill Barnes, as well as Mostly Fanfare (2010), a poignant and intoxicating examination of the hardships of life on stage inspired by the beauty and mystery of vaudeville and silent films. They will also presentEverything Is Getting Better All the Time (2010), a work that explodes with heart and tenacity as four women, dressed in men’s suits, take an inquisitive look into the complexities of their character’s on stage relationships.
