Christine Cali/CALI & CO dance company and Matt Langlois/The WELCOME MATT are collaborating on a LIVE dance/music extravaganza integrating Cali's unique dance-theater aesthetic with Langlois' provocative singer/song-writing style. Deeply investigative and wildly fun, MOVE THRU ME seeks to expose the realities of the road less traveled as artists and free thinkers in a conformist society. Part modern dance, theater production and rock concert, Cali and Langlois will pioneer new territory inside of the performance art genre.
We have been working diligently over the past year to create the work in collaboration with our amazing performers. MOVE THRU ME premieres at Dance Mission Theater in San Francisco Feb 18-20, 2011. We are also creating an original soundtrack available on iTunes and CD, music videos and T-shirts/paraphernalia.
We NEED your support to make this project a reality. Our dancers have been volunteering their creative time, energy and serious talents to make MOVE THRU ME a success and we want to give something back to them for all of their commitment. We are independent artists doing art to survive and just barely doing so. We hope that you will be interested in the sustainability of LIVE art and in the integrity of this project. Thank you!!!
