If the late, great choreographer Merce Cunningham has a legacy, its that there are no limitations in dance. And nowhere is that axiom truer than right here in South Florida, thanks to Karen Peterson and Dancers, who will debut their 20th season this Saturday at the Byron Carlyle Theater.
The show, called Mano e Mano, is a brand-new dance-video fusion piece, featuring the companys exciting roster of mixed-ability dancers. Somewhere, Cunningham will be smiling to see dancers with and without disabilities merging onstage in groundbreaking new choreography courtesy of founder and director Karen Peterson, in addition to video by Cintas fellow Maria Lino and live finger painting. And luckily, you have two chances to catch it: 4 and 8 p.m.
Sat., Oct. 3, 4 & 8 p.m., 2009
