Hamiltonian Artists and Bettmann Dances are co-presenting the company for one night of performances on Thursday, October 29th. The company will be performing two sets of a new 30 minute multi-media installation performance titled ‘The Fun House’. Tickets for the 7 pm show are $5.00 Tickets for the 8pm show are $20, which includes a post-performance reception with the artists.
The Fun House draws from All Good Men, Bettmann Dances’ recent dance-theater adaptation of a Dylan Thomas film-script. The Examiner wrote about All Good Men that, “Bettmann has created a work of art that establishes his ability to mine gold out of our literary vaults and craft his discoveries into complex and beautiful pieces.” Set to classical and contemporary music, and recorded speeches, The Fun House at Hamiltonian will deliver a vivid, street level experience of live dance performance.
The Fun House will be performed at the Hamiltonian Gallery, located at 1353 U St. NW, Washington, D.C., a dynamic new space in the heart of the growing Washington DC contemporary art district. The gallery focuses on innovative works by emerging and mid-career artists. In conjunction with Hamiltonian Artists, the gallery promotes new artists, aiding in their further development.
