Monica Bill Barnes
January 20, 2011
Monica Bill Barnes’s work is an impressive combination of choreographic imagination, intellect and humor. Her dances have the brilliant ability to pull at your heartstrings in one moment and laugh out loud the next. Her new work, Everything Is Getting Better All the Time, is an outrageous and whimsical evening of dance. Borrowing from the glamour of rock concerts, the goodwill of a Little League game and the enthusiasm of a high school marching band, four dancers blend explosive movement and familiar gestures to create distinct characters with a lot of heart and a touch of grit.
