modern garage movement west coast tour

everybody’s favorite all-grrl indie punk dance squad, modern garage movement,(from some of the same girls who bring you the AUNTS dance events) are taking their performance Maynard, to the west coast.

According to their myspace site:

MAYNARD is flowers in the attic relegated to the garage. Created out of boredom and in their free time of three weeks together during the icy beautiful San Francisco summer ’05, bicoastal dancers (Brooklyn-SF) Jbird Leary, Erin Sylvester and Biba Bell simply made a dance, in the garage of Jbird’s stepfather. It was the first MGM dance. The one-car garage set in the fancy house in the fancy neighborhood was the perfect original theater, the perfect rehearsal room. People walked by and wondered what was going on. “What are those girls doing?” MAYNARD is all about the permanent rainbow and the possibility of imagination. The costumes, lights, music and movement appear out of nowhere to shift from color into next-door color. The music, designed by Jbird’s ex-girlfriend Lani Rowe, is entirely based on the structure, meaning, and significance of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” the song that almost didn’t make it into that famous movie. Someone saved it. Thank Fucking God! Way high up, there’s a land I heard of……… MAYNARD for the Summer Tour 2006 has new developments. Biba Bell goes to graduate school and Reba Brooks takes over, changing Biba’s role to suit herself. And there is another real, invented person. The music is refined and more dissonant. The imagination of the dancers is exercised, the imagination of the audience stimulated. Fantasy doesn’t need to make sense. RT: 40 – 60 min, depending on size of space
