Palm Beach Atlantic University's Dance Ensemble will present a fall dance concert featuring Nick Cave's "Soundsuits," mixed-media costumes named for sounds they make when worn in performance.
The ensemble will perform two evenings Friday and Saturday Nov. 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Borland Center Theater, 4885 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. General admission is $10. Visit www.pba.edu/performances for more information.
In addition, the ensemble will perform in the Soundsuits on Thursday, Nov. 11, during the Norton Museum of Art's monthly Art After Dark, which begins at 5 p.m. at the museum, 1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach.
The concerts at the Borland will feature a new work by Jinyoung Lee, adjunct professor of dance at PBA, in collaboration with internationally recognized textile artist Nick Cave and Grammy-nominated composer Michael Moses Tirsch to showcase Cave's exhibit of "Soundsuits."
The program also will include renowned guest choreographer Randall Flinn, artistic director of Ad Deum Dance Company in Houston; Tracy Mozingo, director of Explore Dance Theater; Jacquie Lopez, jazz dancer/choreographer; and Chiara Casiraghi, young choreographer and PBA alumna.
The Norton Museum of Art has partnered with PBA dancers and choreographers to present this performance of art in motion. The exhibition Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of The Earth opened at the Norton Museum of Art on Oct. 9 and will continue through Jan. 9, 2011. This will be the only venue in the Southeastern United States for this nationally circulating exhibition, which is the most extensive presentation of the Chicago-based artist's sculptures to date.
During the Nov. 11 Art After Dark, the dancers will perform five- to 10-minute dances in Soundsuits at three scheduled times: 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults, $5 for ages 13 to 21 and free for Norton Museum members and children younger than 13.
