About this event

Benita Bike’s DanceArt will perform its Los Angeles season finale program on May 20 & 21 at Stomping Ground L.A. prior to performances in June at Boston's Dance Complex. The performances at Stomping Ground L.A. will feature the premiere of a new dance work – ME Dances – in addition to four dances from repertory. Classical, yet contemporary, the Company is known for its musicality, elegance, and expressivity. Choreographer Benita Bike combines unusual music with highly expressive movement and gesture to reveal moments of beauty. Benita Bike’s DanceArt dramatically uses space and gesture to make sensitive observations on life. Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 seniors/DRC, and $15 students.

These dances will be performed at Stomping Ground L.A.:

ME Dances (premiere) – 3 solos and duets about “Me and Moi,” “Me and the Branch,” and “Me and Her.”

Griot Songs – references 3 stages of womanhood: child into woman, young womanhood, and maturity.

Benches – takes you into a park for a day to people watch and imagine the lives of the those who are alone, in pairs, and in groups.

Plugged – explores our relationships to the machines that occupy our world and how these machines affect our sensitivity to nature, quiet, and the earth.

Schoenfield Dances – features a rag, fughetta, shuffle, and boogie, melding early 20th century popular dance with a classical movement sensibility.
