Projekt Move at Sixth Avenue UCC, 3250 E. 6th Ave., presents: Silent Move – contemporary dance interpretation explores an offbeat anonymity in the everyday lives and struggle for identity of women. Scenes of women on a train are Chaplinesque as  they relate to black-and-white silent film aesthetics, yet present a strange disconnect to contemporary modern athleticism. The frantic clamor of modern times is hyper- actualized in jittery pared-down movement.

     Plays Thur.-Sat., Nov. 20-22, 7:30p.m. Tickets ($15) & info: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ,or brownpapertickets.com.
