Dancing About Glass At WFAC

(2.28) This is a real life event. This Sunday, the WaterFire Arts Center will be hosting an afternoon of art and magic as two disciplines collide: a tribute arts exhibition in honor of Rhode Island sculptor Howard Ben Tré paired with the multidisciplinary performance of the Balliamo Dance Collective. But wait, there’s more:

The exhibit will include performances by poet laureate Christopher Johnson and violinist Kevin “Big Lux” Lowther. The featured dancers are Amy Burns, Hannah Petrarca, Nancy Reed and Caroline Zanni.

Two showings will be held, one at 3:30pm, the other at 4:40pm. Admission is free but donations are encouraged. Masks and social distancing will be enforced for everyone’s safety. Each performance runs about 20 minutes. More info at Facebook event page.

The Balliamo Dance Collective supports the works of artists from the local community through both public performances and outreach programming.

(I was immediately reminded of the quote, variously attributed to Frank Zappa, Elvis Costello, even artist/comedian Martin Mull: “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” I lean towards Zappa whose contempt for rock criticism was well known.)

Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

3:30pm & 4:30pm, Sunday, February 28, WFAC, 475 Valley Street, (directions)
