Overground Physical Theatre Company presents Urban Tao from June 29 – July 2, 2011 at 7:30pm at Dance Theater Workshop, 219 W. 19th Street, NYC. Tickets are $20 ($15 for DTW members, students, and seniors) and are available at 212-924-0077 or www.dancetheaterworkshop.org.
Urban Tao is a futuristic dance drama that boldly morphs avant-garde dance, theatre, opera, mime, martial arts, video, and live painting. Drawing upon the paradoxical wisdom of the “Tao Te Ching” and the holistic view of Quantum Physics, internationally acclaimed dance iconoclast Antonia Katrandjieva translates real life situations into Zen revelations – karmic lessons learned by living in the metropolis as urban dwellers thread their owns paths.
“…Profound, subtle, unconventional, Overground Physical Theatre Company is the avant-garde epitome of kinetic intelligence and esoteric vision…”
