La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival

June 21 – 23, 2013, Jennifer Monson & friends/NY/Urbana, New York

La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival which takes place in different venues and features emerging and seasoned choreographers, reflects La MaMa’s longstanding mission to performance that transcends politics and unifies cultures. For this occasion, Jennifer Monson & friends/NY/Urbana will perform at La MaMa experimental Theatre :

“Combining an aesthetic interest in movement investigation and articulating the choreographic possibilities that stem from an investment in movement abandon, each of the artists brings a fiercely physical and intellectual rigor to their work as they shape energetic forces on multiple scales.”

Renée Wadleigh, Renée Archibald, Jennifer Monson and Niall Jones share artistic lives in both New York City and Urbana, Illinois and come from three New York City dance generations – the 60’s, 90’s, and 2000’s. Performance by Nico Brown, Jennifer Lafferty, Niall Jones and Jennifer Monson.
