Celebrating artists from eccentric, experimental and freestyle dance forms, this evening illuminates the many approaches to transformation and shapeshifting. An historic re-imagining of vaudeville where freestyle performers express their culturally unique voix de ville, or “voices of the city.”

“This blog documents the making of voix de ville, and ongoing work/research that continues to emerge as a result of this wonderful experience!”  – Cori Olinghouse

  1. I came across this to look at the Bill Irwin piece, but the whole event is fascinating. And this could be the cleverest name for a show in years!
