“People who like This American Life will probably like this, because it’s just like the radio show, um, if you picture dancing during all the stories.” - Ira Glass
Choreographer Monica Bill Barnes and Ira Glass, host of public radio show This American Life, have been working together to combine two art forms that, as Ira puts it, “have no business being together—dance and radio.” The result is a funny, lively, and heartfelt evening of dance and stories that has brought down the house wherever it’s been performed, starting with its first test run at Carnegie Hall in 2013. The show includes radio interviews restaged as dance pieces, plus stories from the lives of each of the three performers, Ira Glass, Monica Bill Barnes, and Anna Bass.Artist Website Video Photos
