Move It on Down the Line

All we can think about is concrete scrapes — bare knees on asphalt, gravel scratched into tender palms, that kind of thing. We're pansies. At "Trolley Dances," the performers are so not scared of such potential disasters. As audiences travel from one interesting outdoor location to another on Municipal Railway cars, several contemporary dance companies wait, ready to jump around on fountains, rappel down walls, and fly synchronously around platform poles. Some have been known to dance in and on the train cars themselves: Again with the danger! Featured companies include Scott Wells & Dancers, Joanna Haigood's Zaccho Dance Theatre, Epiphany Productions, and Adigun Sipho Capoeira; all have prepared site-specific work to perform along the newest trolley in town, the T-Third.
