Rooftop Reveling 

The Pennington Street Garage again serves as a dance/performance venue

NEW ARTiculations Dance Theatre had so much fun performing The Invisible City atop the Pennington Street Garage two years ago that the dancers are returning to the roof this Sunday.

The evening is partly a fundraiser, but the modern troupe's new co-artistic director, Kimi Eisele, promises that it will be fun.

There'll be a "film showing, two pieces and a wee bit of talking," she says. "(It's) kind of a celebration, really."

The event highlights NEW ART's propensity for dancing in unexpected places. Jamie A. Lee will screen her 20-minute documentary Nourishing Gestures, about a NEW ART community project, We Are What We Eat. The grand finale of that season-long enterprise was a 2008 concert staged outdoors at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.

The dancers will dance an excerpt from We Are What We Eat, and preview a work in progress from FLOW: Dancing for Water Awareness in the Desert.

NEW ART plans to perform parts of that environmental work during an indoor concert in the spring. Long-term, though, Eisele says, "We hope to do it in the Santa Cruz." The goal is to have the dancers perform in the dry riverbed in spring 2012, before the monsoons get the river flowing once again.
