Angela’s Pulse in concert this Saturday

2008 Fashion District Arts Festival
Oct. 18, 3 p.m.
New Dance Group, NYC (305 38th Street 2nd Fl @ 8th Ave.)
Paloma McGregor’s solo dance work, By Definition, is being performed this Saturday (Oct. 18) at 3 p.m. at New Dance Group. The show is FREE! Maresa D’Amore-Morrison, an apprentice with Urban Bush Women, will be dancing this piece, which uses a soundscore of dictionary definitions (by Patricia McGregor/Gary Galbraith) and a costume of deconstructed, multi-hued pantyhose (by me) to explore our conceptions of race. I hope you can be there.

Blood Dazzler star featured in BroadwayWorld.com

Rhea Patterson, who plays a dangerous diva Hurricane Katrina in our newest collaboration Blood Dazzler, is featured for her Broadway work. Blood Dazzler (which will premier at New Dance Group in June 2009) gets a whole paragraph toward the end! Check it out.


Performances this Weekend

So excited to have two performances this week. Check them out:

FRIDAY, Bowery Poetry Club, Blood Dazzler book release party (FREE)
Angela’s Pulse Performance Projects will show a section of Blood Dazzler, my dance/theater collaboration with 4-time National Poetry Slam Champion Patricia Smith and Angela’s Pulse Co-Founder Patricia McGregor. The sneak-peek is part of performance celebrating the release of Smith’s newly published collection of poems by the same name.

SATURDAY, Galapagos Art Space, 60 x 60 ($10 suggested donation)
Paloma McGregor will be performing two short solos. Just got the music a couple days ago. Check out the description: 60 Compositions from 60 composers, each composition 60 seconds or less performed in synchronization with an analog clock. Each song is accompanied by choreography and presented in 60 minutes. 60X60 is conceived by Vox Novus as a “churning wheel of new music production, performance, and dissemination.”

Hope to see you there!

Modern Dance at New Dance Group

Paloma McGregor has a new teaching home in the city, New Dance Group. Since the 1930s, this not-for-profit organization has supported the development of innovative artists and teachers, including a personal hero, Pearl Primus.
