Twyla Tharps Surfer at the River Styx and Patrick Corbins Psychedelic Six Pack: The names alone tip you off. Company C Contemporary Ballet isnt normal, and it doesnt choose normal dances to do. The group is known for unpretentious rigor, meaning it takes dance very seriously but also doesnt take dance very seriously. Three world premieres are also on this bill, one by CCCB artistic director Charles Anderson. Its set to music by Tom Waits and Willie Nelson, and its called Ballet Noir none of the above is normal. Other premieres include Jodie Gates Slip-Ring and James Sewells Gamelan.
