WET CLUTCH by The Dance Cartel

Saturday, August 25 | 8:30 PM | FREE – Outdoors

WET CLUTCH: A Drive-In Dance Experience

Choreographed by Ani Taj

This one-of-a-kind drive-in dance experience reinterprets and remixes movie heroines from the last four decades of American film. Featuring richly-layered original video design, an explosive and electric soundtrack, and high-endurance live performance by TDC’s radically diverse group of dancers, WET CLUTCH invites the audience on a journey through the cultural mythology of Hollywood cinema and the  femme-fatales of the golden age of cinema.

The performance will merge into a physical exchange and culminate with a live set by their long-time collaborator DJ Average Jo – and by the end of a Cartel show, everyone is dancing.

This program has been made possible thanks to the generosity of Anke Beck-Friedrich and Juergen Friedrich.

The development of WET CLUTCH has been supported by a residency at New York Live Arts with an in-progress Studio Series showing in 2015. It was further developed at the LaMaMa Moves! Festival in New York City, an outdoor showing at the Jane Bailey Memorial Garden presented by NYRP + BAM, CATCH @ Knockdown Center, a 2016 residency at Orchard Project, and a one-time concert performance at Seaport Music Festival.
