3 Minutes of Pork and Shoving

I saw the dress rehearsal of this show last night and it is really a fun, quirky, unexpected evening of dance/performance. Plus if you’ve never heard Scotty Heron sing The Eagles’ hit “Desperado” you’re in for a treat.
I’ll bet you’ve never seen a dance around a hamburger on a string hanging from the ceiling before either:

3 Minutes of Pork and Shoving is an eclectic evening of inventive and humorous contemporary dance from New Orleans-based P.S.122 veteran Scott Heron and Minneapolis-based choreographic collaborators HIJACK (Kristin Van Loon and Arwen Wilder). All met up in Russia in 2002, bought black market high heels, made a dance in a coat room, and called it “3 Minutes of Pork and Shoving.”
The evening includes Fetish, Speculum, inspired by the voyeuristic photography of Sophie Calle; the premiere of Stacked, Double Cow in which movement patterns emulate the pathways of florid script; and Louisa Street, a minimalist solo against a slide show of every house on the even-side of New Orleans’ Louisa Street one year after Katrina. (Approximate running time: 75 minutes).
