A professional choreographer and dancer with a rĂ©sumĂ© 20 years long, Julie Brette Adams offers a special performance this Friday across the galleries of the New Mexico Museum of Art. â€śWhen modern dance is taken off the proscenium stage there is an opportunity for the audience and the dancer to experience deeper connection and intimacy,â€ť Adams tells SFR. The modern dance performer explains the special program consists of three parts: Untitled, a butoh-inspired dance involving two large paper sculptures; Falling Out of Love, a blues lament set to the music of songstress Mary Gauthier; and Double Bach, â€śa joyful celebration of the moods and textures expressed in Bachâ€™s music.â€ť Adams says both the setting and its concrete floors present a challenge, but sheâ€™s looking forward â€śto dancing in a totally fresh setting, where a new audience may share my passion and feel inspired by my work.â€ť (EL)
