MEgan Williams Dance Projects 'One woman Show'
april 26,27,28 at 7pm
The 2018 Dance-mopolitan Commissioned Artist series, produced by DANCE NOW, presents Megan Williams' ONE WOMAN SHOW, a post, post modern dance theater follies for the small stage. Williams finds the roots of her aesthetic DNA in the proto- feminist female archetypes of 30's, 40's and 50's Hollywood and uses them as a lens to view the 21st century woman-of a-certain-age's experience. Part memoir, part spectacle, ONE WOMAN SHOW grabs this moment, and holds on tight.
