Mess and Merriment: An Exploration in Delight

  • Contemporary Dance Theater 1805 Larch Avenue Cincinnati, OH, 45224 United States (map)

Two performers with vastly different skill sets approach the stage to create Something. An accident happens—the moment presents itself, defeat or delight? As we explore the space, with the audience’s help, we will use a set of tarp, linen, canvas, props, and (most importantly!) paint, to incorporate movement and play into a final gamification of joy. 


CDT’s newest producer, Mandie Reiber (working in collaboration with Isabelle Provosty), will be presenting COL • LAB • O • RA • TION, a multidisciplinary celebration of art and collaboration. The show presents five works developed by pairs of artists of different disciplines who never created together before. The show will include a diverse blend of music, dance, theater, visual art, and puppetry.

Featured collaborators include:
Mandy Goodwin, Mia Vera, Nicole A. Hershey, Walter Michael DeForest, Hillary Hahn, Brandi Botkin, Alena Firlie, and Isabelle Provosty.

Discounted advanced tickets are available through Thursday, March 28. Save money and time, and be guaranteed a seat by purchasing your tickets in advance!
