This American Life host Ira Glass has been working with Monica Bill Barnes & Company to invent a show that combines two art forms thatas Glass puts ithave no business being together: dance and radio. One is all words and no visuals. One is all visuals and no words. The result is a funny, lively and very talky evening of dance and stories that brought down the house in its first test run at Carnegie Hall. Glass and choreographer Monica Bill Barnes thought their work shared a sensibility. Glass found Barness dances funny and intensely personal. Barnes, in turn, says, Ira has a way of telling stories that makes me . . . empathize, which is what I want an audience to do when we are dancing. In May 2012 Barnes and Glass collaborated on three short dances that were part of a This American Life variety show that was beamed into movie theatres nationwide. It was such a success that they decided to do a full show that combines stories and dance. Join us for an exciting evening of entertaining and unexpected convergences.

For sheer cinematic punch, its hard to match the films of director William Friedkin. The Exorcist, The French Connection, Sorcerer and To Live and Die in L.A. are such great yet hard-hitting pleasures...
