16_x9_ - manhandled - MA4

Presented by Michael Mizerany
August 11th – August 14th

Renowned choreographer Michael Mizerany (bare: a pop opera, A New Brain), returns to the Diversionary stage with [manhandled], a provocative dance program from his company Compulsion Dance & Theatre. Mizerany, a long-time collaborator of Diversionary Theatre, says he was inspired to create the piece after people-watching in airports:

“It was fascinating to see the variety of relationships being mishandled and, on occasion, manhandled. The newer parts of the program will interpret those relationships with a quirky, modern feel, while the rest of the show embraces contemporary dance.”

[manhandled] is a visually stunning and viscerally potent evening featuring the premiere of a new duet, two critically acclaimed works (one with a gender twist), and a piece by guest artist Bradley R. Lundberg. Dancers include David Wornovitzky, Nicholas Strasburg, Brittany Taylor, Bradley R. Lundberg, Andrew Holmes, Martin Anthony Dorado, and Nikki Dunnan. This not-to-be-missed special event is one weekend only and is expected to sell out.

Special events around the performance include:

Opening Night Performance: Thursday, August 11th at 7pm
Post-show talk-back with the company: Saturday, August 13th, approximately 9pm
