Serious Rock

Serious Rock offered an evening-length production of live music and dance celebrating the ridiculous and sublime moments of the performer’s life. Performed at the Clark Studio Theater at NYC’s Lincoln Center with music by the kloetzel&co. band, the evening premiered Sweet Betty and postpick, which both included live music composed and performed by Melanie Kloetzel. The evening also recapped the popular prepick and Shed, which had enjoyed presentation through Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church, the 92nd Street Y, the Flea Theater, the Cunningham Studios, and Movement Research at the Judson Church. Dancers for the evening included kloetzel&co. members Julie Betts, Theresa Palazzo, Ayla Yavin, and Chalie Livingston. Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times called the evening “…a rare occurrence in dance.” Serious Rock was also presented at Swarthmore College through the “Window on the Work” series. With support from the 92nd Street Y and the Brooklyn Arts Council.
