Monica Bill Barnes Company at PS21

    The Monica Bill Barnes Company will be at PS21 in Chatham on Friday and Saturday night with two productions - Luster and Suddenly Summer Somewhere. Both pieces were choreographed by Monica Bill Barnes and performed by Monica and Anna Bass.

Luster premiered at The American Dance Festival in July 2012. Featuring themes of endurance and triumph, this duet highlights autobiographical moments of the performers, who are entering their tenth year of dancing together.

In Suddenly Summer Somewhere, two small women stand on top of a dining room table. In silence, carefully navigating the table top, they send silverware crashing to the floor. Simultaneously hilarious and painful, the piece explores how the passage of time affects the collective lives of two people.
