Jane Comfort & Company

Friday April 8, 2016

Meany Hall

8-9:30PM

Declared “a postmodernist pioneer in the use of verbal material in dance” by The New York Times, Jane Comfort addresses contemporary social and cultural issues with compassion and wit. The company is an extraordinary group of dancers, actors and singers whose multiple talents allow Comfort to create layered works utilizing a wide range of theatrical elements. The program features the critically acclaimed Beauty. This provocative dance theater work explores the American notion of female attractiveness by framing the dialogue of the cultural pressures surrounding women’s physique, attire and appearance around the quintessential image of Barbie. Beauty is “wickedly funny and …isn’t interested in forgiveness” (The New York Times).
