Monica Bill Barnes & Company: Museum Workout 

When: June 3-5 2017
Price: $10-$33

Since the American Dance Festival organized its 2010 season around the question "What is dance theater?", Monica Bill Barnes & Company have ventured compelling answers with sharp dances that poke at the conventions of theatrical entertainment and uncover the comedy of everyday life. That year, the company made its ADF debut with the confetti-strewn Another Parade, where four dancers stared down the audience, hips swiveling to James Brown. In 2015, the company brought its dance-radio collaboration with Ira Glass, Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host, to DPAC (also with confetti). This summer, the troupe warms us up for ADF's mainstage offerings with a suitably vibrant pair of shows. At NCMA, Museum Workout combines a choreographed workout with a museum tour led by Barnes and Anna Bass. But if you prefer your participatory dance with less sweating, the duo is also soon reprising its dance-karaoke hybrid Happy Hour (Tuesday, June 6–Friday, June 9, PSI Theatre, Durham), a gender-bending piece that riffs on after-work bacchanalia. —Michaela Dwyer
