Something of a Blue Variety at Mercy Lounge 

Dancy Party

Dancy Party
It’s a year of anniversaries for local arts companies: 25 for Tennessee Rep, 20 for ACT I, 10 for People’s Branch Theatre and 20 for the Blue Moves Modern Dance Company, the Boro-based nonprofit comprising volunteer performers and choreographers. By virtue of hanging in there, Blue Moves has become the longest-lived independent modern dance ensemble in Middle Tennessee, and this celebration offers an opportunity for sharing some of their more upbeat, “adult” repertory: “Eraserhead,” a quirky character piece based on the lyrics of Bruce McCulloch; “Big Spender,” a full-company effort that tips the hat to Fosse; the sensual “Popsicles”; and “My Baby,” which merges blues and tap-dancing. Special guests include Mona Barz, who will perform a monologue by New York playwright and former Blue Moves member Julie Shavers; belly dancers from Bodhicitta; Jenna Longmire singing jazzy pop originals; and Barb Neligan with storytelling and comedy.

Sun., Sept. 20, 7:30 p.m., 2009
