On Saturday, the Catskill Mill on Main Street Catskill is hosting a dance performance (and a pre-performance auction and a post-performance dance party) as a benefit for the Greene County Council on the Arts.
The evening is planned with young, impecunious types in mind: tickets are on a sliding scale, and a DJ will turn the Mill into a club for the after party. (If you only come for the dance, you can get in for just $5.) Food is being provided by the Catskill Mill Food Truck.
The centerpiece of the evening is a collaborative dance performance choreographed by a group of local dancers and accompanied by live music:
The highlight of the evening is a collaborative dance performance inspired by sketches drawn especially for the event by Kiki Smith, and featuring live music by Michael Moss and Billy Stein. Nine dancers, a collection of seasoned pros from the area including Jean Churchill, Peggy Gould, Sondra Loring, Judith Moss, Donald Mouton, Nancey Rosensweig, Maria Simpson and Todd Whitley, will be creating and performing the piece.
“between the lines” Live Music/Movement Event, Live Auction and Dance Party. Saturday May 16, 7 p.m. Catskill Mill, 361 Main St., Catskill. greenearts.org.
