PHCA’s patented Dance-with-Sports-Commentary Showcase is coming to Boulder! See great art ridiculed, mutilated, and reduced to its lowest common denominator by our expert panel of judges.
Never seen professional dance?
Seen way too much of it?
This bi-monthly program at PHCA offers audiences a crash course in dance-viewing, with expert analysis, profound interpretation, and works of splendorous artistic genius ranging from the stunning to the flabbergasting to the downright obscene. Our SPECIAL FRINGE EDITION brings the judging panel to Boulder to view and critique the freshest work around: the newly minted products of the weekend workshop Creation with Varied Materials (another PHCA-Fringe co-production).
HOW IT WORKS: Each piece is first performed in its pure state. The commentators respond with insightful feedback, then give some guidance for ‘bettering’ the work. They accompany a second performance with their insightful commentary, offering the audience new (and stupider) ways of viewing this important expressive art. Ever wondered what the hell those people are rolling around on the floor about? Ever sought the perfect amalgamation of the olympics, dog-shows, and high art? Ever yearned for new depth and intensity of meaning in your life? THIS IS IT.
Warning: this may leave you stupider…
