Two experimental dance companies open the inaugural season at ODC's freshly-renovated digs with a program that takes the traditional and contemporary and shakes it like James Bond’s martini.
Named after a form of bluesy Greek music, Rebetiko digs up the islands’ history in this Kunst-Stoff world premiere, choreographed by the acclaimed Yannis Adoniou. A wistful postmodern folk dance - complete with vocalist and shadow theater artist - it’s an innovative portrayal of sorrow and oppression via dance.
October 21-24. ODC Theater, 3153 17th Street. Tickets are $18 at odctheater.org.
