The Washington, D.C., premiere of Fare Well—The End of the World as We Know It OR Dancing Your Way to Paradise, a work by dancer and choreographer Maida Withers, will be held in November at Dance Place, 3225 8th Street NE.
The solo piece will be featured during performances of the Maida Withers Dance Construction Company on November 6 at 8:00 p.m. and November 7 at 4:00 p.m.
Fare Well explores the contemporary issue of end time, or the conclusion of creation myths, through dance, electronic music, text, and visual installations. The piece incorporates an art video by Ayo Okunseinde and Withers, original music by Steve Hilmy, and haiku and other writings by David McAleavey (performed by Alex Caldiero).
Also on the bill is a new trio, Naked Truth, featuring dancers Tzveta Kassabova, Anthony Gongora, and Giselle Ruzany, with visual animation by Tania Fraga, music by Hilmy, and images by Okunseinde.
