Sidra Bell Dance New York, in collaboration with Per Störby (Composer) from Sweden, is developing a multidisciplinary dance, MÖNSTER OUTSIDE. The piece is performed by Bell’s four dancers and the New Tide Orquesta from Sweden in a stage arena that marries Bell’s brand of highly technical movement with Störby’s sound worlds and visual scenographic projections to speak to themes of human alienation and the search for intimacy in constantly shifting contemporary life.
Sidra Bell’s genre-busting movement is accompanied by live music that includes the melodic aspects of baroque, the unpredictable clashes in free improvisation, and the progressive patterns of minimalism. It embraces fleeting images culminating into cinematic and theatrical currents.
The National Dance Project has awarded Sidra Bell Dance New York a Production Grant to support the creation and touring of MÖNSTER OUTSIDE.
