Dance Off the Grid [link] | The Emelin Theater, Mamaroneck

When a critic as respected and prolific as Valerie Gladstone puts her talents to work not reviewing dance performances but presenting them, it's time to sit up and take notice. That's exactly what dance-lovers and newcomers to the genre alike have been doing since the inaugural season of Dance Under the Influence at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, called a must-see "eclectic performance series" by The New Yorker. After three sold-out seasons providing a platform for innovators in tap, flamenco, postmodern dance, Indian classical dance, and a variety of cross-disciplinary dance forms, the series is coming to the Emelin in the form of Dance Off the Grid, a four-part survey of the diversity of today's dance landscape, featuring live performances by the top talent of contemporary dance. These showpieces will not only range from ballet to modern to puppetry to everything in between, consisting of only the absolute best from performers at the peak of the profession and the height of their skills; the evenings will also reveal the inspirations behind each work.

Although initially performed in 1967, the universal themes of individuality, experimentation and acceptance in the face of oppression are just as resonant today. All the chart-topping songs that became anthems of counter-culture and the sexual revolution are back including "Aquarius," "Let the Sun Shine in," "Good Morning, Starshine" and "Easy to be Hard". Bold! Brash! Angry and defiant! This new production returns to its rebellious and provocative roots! Join the revolution - it's the dawning of a new age!
