Douglas Dunn’s Vain Combat and The Snake have been anonymously prowling the streets of New York City for a year and half. In Central Park, Lincoln Center, Times Square, Chelsea Market, Bryant Park, Union Square, Tompkins Square Park, The Highline, and many other Manhattan locations, the two dances have offered themselves up gratis at various times of day to passersby and to crowds that gather.

The Company is now invited to participate in La MaMa’s 50th Anniversary event on Sunday, October 16, 2011 (www.lamama.org). Both pieces will be on view, twenty-one dancers in all. Because we are "going public," we are asking for your support. Your donation will go directly to pay dancers' salaries. Seeing their prowess, you'll be glad you became part of our endeavor.

For pictures and video of the work, visit the company’s web site (www.douglasdunndance.com), check out its Facebook page, YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/vaincombat), and Twitter account. Douglas Dunn & Dancers thanks you in advance and looks forward to seeing you on East 4th Street between The Bowery and 2nd Avenue on Sunday, October 16th, 2 - 6 PM.
